Palate Dry medium-bodied. Ripe and 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 Robert Parker 93 + Points. ‘This is a delicious value wine that has shown great strides forward in quality over the past two vintages. The Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello is a hot seller and 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.’
