Le Difese is the third label of the famous Tenuta San Guido vineyard. Located in the Bolgheri region, not far from the coast, this Tuscan estate earned its iconic status thanks to Sassicaia, founding father of the Supertuscans, and one of the most famous wines in Italy.

Its creator, Mario Incisa Della Rochetta, first made the pioneering decision to plant cabernet sauvignon here in the 1940s. Although cultivating cabernet in Italy was almost unheard of, Mario was a great claret fan, and he realised that the climate and soils of Bordeaux were similar to those of part of his estate. The vineyard is now run by Nicolò, Mario's son.
