James SucklingA wine with attractive berry, black olive and hints of wood. Medium-to-full body, with firm tannins and a chewy finish. Wood, tannins should melt into the wine with bottle age. A blend of 25% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Sangioveto. Better in 2014 .

VinousThe estate's 2011 Le Sughere di Frassinello shows lovely finesse and harmony. Plum and dark cherry notes meld into tobacco, incense and spices. A hint of orange peel adds exotic, floral overtones that are intriguing, while the finish is nicely focused and impeccable. Le Sughere is Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drinking window: 2013 - 2019.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Le Sughere di Frassinello is immediately more balanced. There's beauty here with full density and thick texture. A rich wall of blackberry and spice is backed by bitter chocolate and tobacco. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.

Wine SpectatorElegant and subtle, featuring black cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. The tannins sneak in, leaving a tactile sensation on the long finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2016 through 2030.
