Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Aromas of dark berry fruits such as black cherries, blueberries and blackberries with subtle spice flavours of liquorice, leather vanilla and cinnamon.
Palate Dry medium bodied with fairly high acidity. Ripe but balanced tannins with fruit flavours of red currants, damson and spice. Good length with some nice spice and liquorice flavours towards the finish.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 93 Points. ‘This is a delicious value wine that has shown great strides forward in quality over the past two vintages. The 2013 Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello is a hot seller and with 95,000 bottles produced, it should not be difficult to locate. The blend consists of Sangioveto, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The oak is evident but it is also folded nicely within the thickness of the wine. Rich flavours of dark fruit, spice, liquorice and grilled herb peel off in thick layers. This wine is really beginning to shine.’
Vinous-Antonio Galloni 91 Points. ‘Sweet red cherry, plum, mocha, liquorice, lavender and dark spices meld together in the 2013 Le Sughere di Frassinello. Pliant, silky and expressive, the 2013 will drink well for at least a handful of years. The French oak is a bit noticeable at this point, but that is a pretty small critique at this level.’
