Description

A fine red wine from Tuscany with a seductive balance and roundness

The estate

The Rocca di Frassinello estate is the fruit of the partnership between the highly reputed Chianti Classico estate, Castellare di Castellina, and Domaines Barons de Rothschild's Château Lafite. Established in 2007 and designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano, Rocca di Frassinello produces fine Maremma Toscana wines.

The wine

Following the traditional Bordeaux-style regarding the production of the estate's "Grand Vin", this Rocca di Frassinello wine has been an illustrious reference among the finest Maremma Toscana wines since its creation in 2004. The emblematic wine of the Franco-Italian joint-venture was created by Alessandro Cellai and Christian Le Sommer, the oenologists of Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite. Praised by critics from its first vintage, this wine is renowned for its subtle alliance between power, suppleness and elegance.

The vintage

A rainy winter preceded a cool spring that delayed budburst. The mild conditions during summer helped to make up for the delay and enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully. The temperature variations between day and night favoured an optimal concentration of the grapes while preserving a pleasant acidity. Harvesting was carried out in the first half of September, giving rise to a structured and particularly fresh vintage.

Vinification and ageing

Vinification in concrete vats. Malolactic fermentation. Aged for 14 months in new oak barrels (80%) followed by 11 months in bottles.

The blend

Merlot

Sangiovese

Cabernet Sauvignon
