Characteristics of Tenuta San Guido Le Difese

Tenuta San Guido Le Difese is a red wine made with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese varieties by the Tenuta San Guido Italian winery in Tuscany.

Tenuta San Guido is a winery that from 1948 to 1967 only made wine for the Incisa della Rocchetta family to enjoy. It all started with Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, a young student who had a dream to make Bordeaux-style wines. This is how Sassicaia was born, a wine that comes from stony soils and that was such a success when it was put on sale, that the Tuscan region of Bolgueri began to be known as one of the best wine regions in the world.

The Tenuta San Guido Le Difese vineyards are located at an altitude of between 100 and 300 metres and facing south and southwest. These are strains planted in limestone soils rich in broken down loam and clay and cultivated using conventional agriculture. Cultivation is traditional, with a yield of 5,800 strains per hectare and the harvest is manual.

In the winery, the Tenuta San Guido Le Difese grapes are carefully classified on the selection table. They are then destemmed and gently pressed to ferment at a controlled temperature and with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. During this process, each variety macerates separately with skins for 13 to 15 days for the Cabernet and 15 to 18 days for the Sangiovese. When the coupage has been made, it is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.

Tenuta San Guido Le Difese is Sassicaia’s third wine and is said to have been made for the founder's granddaughter’s wedding. A very expressive red wine with a very strong acidity that comes from one of the most prestigious wine regions in the world.
