Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana Le Sughere di Frassinello 2017 (92 points, $22)
Tar, pine resin and eucalyptus aromas are countered by massive blackberry and black currant fruit in this complex, assertive red, with a generous dose of toasty oak. Beefy tannins match the fruit but sit apart for now. Try now for a ride on the wild side, or age short-term. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2026. 11,000 cases made. From Italy.—Bruce Sanderson
