Good. A bit dry for my taste. Like blackberries.
Have not had this wine in many years! Remembered that I liked it....and found it again! Nice wine with lots of cherry up front on the nose. Soft tannins and a nice balanced medium body with good structure. Just a great wine for around $25. Wonderful floral notes on the nose! But not easy to find! Enjoy! Cheers!

Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.
Great perfume, with wonderful fruit and stoniness underneath. Great acidity, too. Honey, apples, melon. Wonderful food wine.
Melon, white flowers, and mandarin peel aromas and flavors. Nice body.

Made from Grenache and Syrah and spent no time in oak barrels, so the flavors of strawberry, red fruits, and sweet spices are bright and fresh. - Winery
Bright and jazzy, with juicy blackberry, chocolate and herb flavors, lingering against tight tannins. Drink now through 2016. 4,000 cases imported. -HS
The 2010 Le Sughere di Frassinello bursts from the glass with an exciting melange 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. The 2010 fleshes out nicely on the substantial finish. Le Sughere is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. Dark and brooding, this red offers black cherry, plum, raspberry, meat and graphite aromas and flavors. Muscular and firm, with a dark fruit finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2020. 2,250 cases imported. -BS
