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
