Rocca di Frassinello le Sughere di Frassinello IGT 2008

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.

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.

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.

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 estateandrsquo;s second label. It is a 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 12 months in French oak, 50% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;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.

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: 2009ndash;2017.
