Rocca di Frassinello

Rocca di Frassinello

Tuscany

From the joint venture between Castellare di Castellina and Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Château Lafite comes a winery that is the harmonious synthesis of the great viticulture traditions of Italy and France. Inaugurated in 2007, Rocca di Frassinello stands on the hills of Giuncarico – in the heart of the Maremma, between Bolgheri and Montalcino – in a particularly favourable position for growing grapes thanks to a constant sea breeze that provides humidity and keeps the climate mild throughout the seasons.
The estate covers 500 hectares (about 83 hectares of vineyards) with alternating woods, crops and vineyards, which favours biodiversity and protects environmental sustainability.
The Sangioveto vineyards (the Maremma name of Sangiovese), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Vermentino give life to five red wines, one white and one rosé, which are also highly appreciated internationally. The iconic Baffonero stands out above all others. Born with the 2007 vintage, it was soon considered one of the greatest Merlots in the world.
The cellar, designed by Renzo Piano to be a hymn to lightness and a contemporary classic, is the physical manifestation of Rocca di Frassinello’s cosmopolitan outlook.
The first and only cellar designed by the great architect, the structure is a discreet presence with a low visual impact, which develops around the slender red tower that has in recent years become a landmark for the whole area between Giuncarico and Gavorrano.

  • There is a red thread that binds wine to sailing: a friendly challenge that Baffonero, Rocca di Frassinello’s 100% Merlot wine, launched to Ornellaia’s Masseto to compete for the title of King of Merlots. A challenge that recalls the one of the America’s Cup 2021, when Luna Rossa put New Zealand to the test, fighting to the last with tenacity.
    In honor of Luna Rossa and its passion inspiring all of us, a special edition of the 2017 vintage of Baffonero was created, produced in 500 collector’s unit only, to pay homage to that Yacht racing that made us dream during the America’s Cup 2021.

  • This is a pure Merlot. The Baffonero is an admirable example of how this international grape knows how to express itself in Tuscany. This impenetrable ruby ​​red lacks neither muscle nor character, with concentrated and intense aromas of blueberry, blackberry and a range of spices, including black pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg. The mouth aromas are consistent but – insofar as that is even possible – even more explosive than the nose, with a virile tannic concentration and imposing structure.
    This is certainly not a wine for the faint of heart, and is appreciated for its power and longevity. And of course one would expect nothing less from Rocca di Frassinello, a winery born of an alliance between two giants in the world of winemaking, Castellare di Castellina and Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite. Even the name, Baffonero, expresses virility and refers to the homonymous vineyard raised at the foot of the cellar, designed by Renzo Piano. The wine ferments in steel to then mature for 14 months in small French oak barrels, followed by 12 months in the bottle.
