Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

"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 midpalate depth in a mediumbodied, sleek style supported by firm yet wellintegrated tannins. The 2010 fleshes out nicely on the substantial finish. Le Sughere is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 20122017. This is another strong set of wines from proprietor Paolo Panerai and longtime winemaker Alessandro Cellai. I find it interesting that Panerai pursues a much more refined approach at Castellare, his legacy Tuscan winery, than at Rocca di Frassinello, where the wines are made in a more fullthrottle style that pushes the edge of ripeness."
