Rocca di Frassinello 2008
A Super Tuscan thats part of a project with Chateau Lafite in Bordeaux.
Rocca di Frassinello impresses for its polish and supremely elegant personality. Sweet red berries, roses and licorice are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this pliant, polished red.
Grapes: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is from the Tuscany region of Italy and is a project between the famous French Bordeaux producer Lafite and the Italian producer Castellare. The winemaker from Baron Rothschild-Lafite, Christian Le Somme, visits once a month and, by working closely with Alessandro Cellai (from Castellare di Castellina) they are able to maintain the essential Italian character of Tuscany, through the plantings of Sangiovese combined with the power and mid-palate weight of Cabernet and Merlot.
