We are pleased to offer the sibling of Guidalberto and Sassicaia; Difese 2010, which is a blend of 70% cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in steel temperature controlled vats with maceration on the skins lasting 12 days for both the Cabernet and the Sangiovese. The wine is than aged for 12 months in French and American oak barriques and refined for 3 months in bottle before release to the market. As with the Guidalberto, Sebastiano Rosa has made great strides with this wine and we feel that it he has hit the bull’s eye now in producing a very Tuscan blend of flavours. Sebastiano's aim here is to produce a wine of accessibility and youthful pleasure, in contrast to the more structured and long-lived style of Sassicaia. Also of course, more affordable!

Tasting Notes: The 2010 has elegant aromas of red currants and black cherries intermingled with dried fruits and herbs. Poised and refreshing on the palate with attractive sweet fruit notes balanced by fine tannins and a lively acidity. Very rewarding and complex on the finish, and wonderful to drink now.
