Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana 2007

Member Review by shsim:

Not very flavorful. Had it at a Tuscany tasting and it was bland. It might be that I do not like the Tuscany style. It taste like it has been watered down. Dry.

Great surprise! Tastes like a good California Cabernet. I thunk it must be a super-Tuscan (the grape varieties are not on the label). A great deal of berry flavors, some vanilla, some coffee and toast. Fantastic value!

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.

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 that’s not the estate’s flagship bottling.

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.
