Rocca di Frassinello Le Sughere di Frassinello 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Maremma Toscana|
|Brand||Rocca di Frassinello|
Deep ruby red color. 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. Ideal with all roasts, grills, barbecues, and with sautéed fillets of beef. Great with cheeses as well.
The 2017 Le Sughere di Frassinello is a racy, pliant wine that captures all of the natural radiance of the year. Super-ripe red fruit, hard candy, menthol, licorice, plum, espresso and dried flowers all flesh out nicely in the glass. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well right out of the gate.
Made with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this offers aromas of dark-skinned fruit, espresso and cedar. The dense palate presents blackberry jam, coconut and espresso alongside smooth tannins.
