Ratings & Reviews


93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Wild rosemary, thyme and camphor aromas lead off, with concentrated flavors of blackberry and black currant. An iron edge sinks in as this unfolds to the long, staining finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2032. 11,000 cases made, 5,500 cases imported. — BS" (Issue Oct 15, 2018)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A juicy red with cherries, chocolate and some orange character. Medium body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious aftertaste. Drink now." - 12 Jul, 2018

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2016 Le Sughere di Frassinello is laced with bright red cherry, plum, white chocolate and floral notes. Medium in body and gracious, Le Sughere is quite pretty in 2016. The new oak needs time to fully assimilate. Otherwise, this is very nicely done. Time in the glass helps the wine come together. Le Sughere is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is the red-toned fruit of the Sangioveto (Sangiovese) that is particularly expressive today." - Antonio Galloni (Mar 2019)
