Rocca Di Frassinello Le Sughere Di Frassinelo 2015 Italian Red Wine 750 mL

$24.99

“These are some of the very best wines I have tasted from proprietor Paolo Panerai and his long time winemaker, Alessandro Cellai. The 2015s are rich and deep, as these wines always are, but they also have quite a bit of nuance to them as well.” From Tuscany New Releases: Maremma, Montepulciano & More (Apr 2018) by Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectator 90 points – A bright, fruity style, with elements of earth, wild herb and menthol adding interest. Fluid and moderately long, featuring beefy tannins. Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022. 8,333 cases made. -BS.July/2017

Vinous 93 points – The 2015 Le Sughere di Frassinello is terrific. Scents of sweet pipe tobacco, mint, leather, rose petal and exotic spice give the 2015 much of its immediate allure. Super-ripe and racy on the palate, with silky tannins and gorgeous, supple fruit, the 2015 is hugely appealing..April/2018

James Suckling 92 points – A juicy and ripe red with dried berry and chocolate. Medium body with chewy and soft tannins. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Better in 2019..August/2017
