Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red color. Sweet red berries, roses and licorice are among the aromasand flavors that emerge from this great red. Polish and supremely elegant personality. Great structure with a pleasant long finish.

Ideal with long-cooked meat dish and barbecues. Delicious with aged cheeses.

Blend: 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sangioveto (otherwise known as Sangiovese) is enhanced with smaller parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to make the 2015 Maremma Toscana Rocca di Frassinello. This wine is showing improved results as the estate's vines grow in age and, consequently, in complexity with each passing year. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, and the wine later ages in barrique for 14 months. It shows enormous richness and power that is delivered in a happily balanced manner, thanks to the ripe and opulent nature of the fruit in this vintage. There is a point of sweetness followed by dark fruit flavors and balanced spice. This wine will continue its evolution over the better part of the next decade.

Wine Spectator
Aromas and flavors of mineral, black cherry, blackberry and tar highlight this rich, vibrant red. The tannins are well-integrated. Extends nicely on the finish. Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2025.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Made with 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this offers aromas of black currant, underbrush and green peppercorn. The juicy palate offers dried black cherry, tobacco and ground black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins.

James Suckling
This is a little cooked with light raisin, treacle tart and chocolate character. Full body, chewy and flavorful. A little overdone but I still like it.

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.

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.
