Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2010

Purple-ruby robe.  A full glass of delicious intrigue on the nose, where ripe black currant aromas mix with earthy scents of dried clay and a hint of smoke.  Medium-bodied, with moderate tannins and subtle acidity.  Still quite youthful, with a lot of push from the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (70% of the blend), while the Sangiovese grapes (30%) add notes of black cherries.  Hints of basil and wood emerge with time in the glass.  Pairs well with red meats and meat-driven pasta sauces.  13% alc.  $30  Drink now-2015.  (91)
