Opaque inky-purple. Overripe black fruit aromas are lifted by a pretty floral nuance and a hint of cocoa. Supple and sweet initially, but with firm underlying acidity framing the flavors of woodsy red fruits and flowers. Finishes with building, oak-derived tannins that coat the palate dry. A showy, large-scaled wine that really needs food.

The 2005 Le Sughere di Frassinello possesses an added dimension of weight in its dark cherry, plum, licorice, leather, smoke and earthy flavors. This medium to full-bodied red offers excellent length although the tannins dry out a bit on the finish as the wine lacks a little stuffing on the mid-palate. Still, this is a strong effort that bodes very well for the future. Le Sughere di Frassinello is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.

The 2004 Sughere di Frassinello (50% Sangioveto, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot) is a plump, juicy effort. Fresh and vinous on the nose, it offers attractive super-sweet dark fruit and toasted oak notes on a medium bodied frame with a long finish and a soft, accessible personality. A slight note of greenness keeps the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2014.

A beautiful red, with layers of rich, dark fruit. Full, with velvety tannins and a juicy, opulent finish. Better with a little bottle age.

The 2008 Le Sughere di Frassinello is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is one of the more refined, elegant wines I have tasted from this emerging property in Gavorrano. Layers of ripe dark fruit emerge in a silky, refined style that is utterly irresistible. Mint, flowers and spices follow, adding further complexity, while a final burst of juiciness has the last say on the finish. This isn't the biggest wine Rocca di Frassinello has made, but I am deeply impressed by the classiness and length of the regal finish. As always, I recommend the estate's wines be opened at least 30 minutes in advance, which seems to help the aromatics of these wines find their center. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

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.

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. 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.
