Tuscany, Italy     $19.00

Happy New Year Notable Wine-ers !!

We are off to a great beginning with wine values
in 2012 with the new release of Le Sughere di
Frassinello from Tuscany, Italy.

Rocca di Frassinello,  the estate which produces
Le Sughere was purchased in 1999 in a partnership
between  Paolo Panerai, owner of Castellare in
Chianti Classico and Baron Eric de Rothschild of
Domaines Barons de Lafite in Bordeaux, France.

The goal of the two owners of this new estate was
to blend Castellare’s experience in the growing and
vinification of Tuscany’s premier grape, Sangiovese,
with Lafite’s experience in harvesting top quality
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Le Sughere is a selection of 3 wines, 50% Sangiovese,
25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot produced
under the supervision of these great winemakers.

Aged in small oak barrels, (50% new, 50% used from
Domaines de Rothschild), Le Sughere is a big wine
with soft tannins, massive fruit and a long, full finish.
It will be at its best between 2014 and 2016.  You
can enjoy it now by decanting the bottle 2 hours
before serving.

Serve with your favorite red meats, hearty winter stews
and full flavored cheeses.

Imported by Vias Imports, LTD, New York, NY.
