Winemaker Notes

Created in honour of the "butteri", which remains the symbol of the Maremma region, strong and elegant at the same time. The Ornello is a long, pointed stick that is still used today for driving cattle. The wine stands out for its substantial percentage of Syrah grapes that make it very full and rich, nonetheless retaining the typical elegance and freshness of Rocca di Frassinello wines.

Intense ruby red. On the nose it has balsamic and roasted coffee notes. On the palate there are notes of woody undergrowth and soft, velvety tannins.

It pairs well with meat dishes, including roasts, cold cuts and medium-mature cheeses.

Blend: 40% Sangioveto, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah

Rocca di Frassinello, Italy
Rocca di Frassinello Winery Image
After Castellare di Castellina, located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, Rocca of Frassinello was born in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, between Bolgheri to the north and Scansano (the Morellino area) to the south. A great international project conceived with the partnership of Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite: 500 hectares, 80 already cultivated with vines, 50% Sangioveto and 50% Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Shiraz, to produce three wines in what can be considered as a meeting of the best of Italy and France: the third label, the wine of entrance, without the name of the company, Poggio alla Guardia; the second label, with a part of the name of the company, Le Sughere di Frassinello; and the first label, Le Grand Vin, Rocca di Frassinello. The first year of marketing was the 2004 vintage, with the delivery of the third label on June 2006, the second on September-October, the first one within the end of 2006. Three wines that the wine maker of Castellare and manager of Rocca di Frassinello, Alexander Cellai, and Christian Le Sommer, renowned wine maker of the various companies of Domaine Baron de Rothschild in the world, have judged simply extraordinary, to the point of convincing the ownership to immediately sell Le Grand Vin as well, the first label Rocca of Frassinello.

Red Wine

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
