92 Points - James Suckling
90 Points - Wine Spectator

Located in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Rocca di Frassinello was created in 2001 as a joint-venture between Castellare and Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite - the first partnership of its kind. The project couples Castellare's experience in the growing and vinification of Sangioveto with Lafite's experience in classic French varietals.

Composed of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Le Sughere di Frassinello is bursting with complex notes of black cherry, raspberry, violets, dried herbs, tobacco and spice. Balanced acidity and firm, yet well-integrated tannins merge with hints of game and graphite on the dark fruit finish.

“Baked cherry, anise and celery root. Very spicy and zesty, slightly rustic but bold and full-bodied. Should harmonize and improve by 2016.” - James Suckling

“This rich red is bursting with cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, matched to a bright structure. The tannins are refined and well-integrated, with moderate grip on the finish. Drink now through 2020.” - Wine Spectator
