Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello 2015
Winemaker Notes :
Deep ruby red in color, this wine bursts from the glass with aromas of sweet red cherries, herbs, licorice and tobacco. It shows lovely mid-palate depth in a medium-bodied, sleek style supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins.
Ideal with all roasts, grills, barbecues, and with sauteed fillets of beef. Great with cheeses as well.

VinousThe 2015 Le Sughere di Frassinello is terrific. Scents of sweet pipe tobacco, mint, leather, rose petal and exotic spice give the 2015 much of its immediate allure. Super-ripe and racy on the palate, with silky tannins and gorgeous, supple fruit, the 2015 is hugely appealing.
James SucklingA juicy and ripe red with dried berry and chocolate. Medium body with chewy and soft tannins. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Better in 2019.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello is a great value blend of 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon (aged in French oak for one year). This wine boasts a proven track record for its consistent value and accessibility and can be counted on for both. It releases a steady flow of dark fruit and spice aromas that build in momentum. The mouthfeel is generous and softly velvety in texture, especially in this warm vintage.
Wine SpectatorA bright, fruity style, with elements of earth, wild herb and menthol adding interest. Fluid and moderately long, featuring beefy tannins. Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022. 8,333 cases made.
