The 2009 Le Sughere di Frassinello is simply dazzling in this vintage. Expressive floral notes are woven throughout a fabric of vibrant dark fruit in this intense, supple red. Racy and expressive from start to finish, the wine impresses for its fabulous harmony and ripe, explosive finish. Le Sughere is best described as the estate's second label. It is a 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 12 months in French oak, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. This red is imbued with black currant, cherry and cedar aromas and flavors. The tannins are firm, but nicely entwined with the texture, and this finishes with a harmony of fruit and spice. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2022. 2,250 cases imported. -BS - Top 100, 2011 ** Only 18 in Stock **

Ruby-red. Pungent oak spices, black cherry, cocoa and sweet pipe tobacco on the very pure nose. Silky and opulent in the mouth, with jammy dark cherry and chocolate flavors. Impressively dense, lush and long, with a strong repeating note of cocoa on the finish. Excellent for a wine thatandrsquo;s not the estateandrsquo;s flagship bottling.

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine of great character. Deep ruby red in color, with good berry fruit and floral notes, hints of minerals, and nice elegant spicy tones. Medium-bodied, with fine, velvety tannins and a medium-to-long finish. Wine suitable for ageing, but so very pleasant due to the soft tannins that it can also be drunk young. It pairs well with all red meat dishes and mature cheeses.
