From The Critics
2012 Rocca di Frassinello Le Sughere di Frassinello Maremma Toscana DOC - 92 pts.
James Suckling, October 2014
“Baked cherry, anise and celery root. Very spicy and zesty, slightly rustic but bold and full-bodied. Should harmonize and improve by 2016.” - James Suckling
2012 Rocca di Frassinello Le Sughere di Frassinello Maremma Toscana DOC - 90 pts.
Wine Spectator, October 2014
“This rich red is bursting with cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, matched to a bright structure. The tannins are refined and well-integrated, with moderate grip on the finish. Drink now through 2020.” -Bruce Sanderson
