A mix of Italian macchia, iron, tobacco and soy flavors swirl around the core of black cherry and blackberry in this expressive, intense red. Solidly built and fresh, with vibrant structure driving the long aftertaste. Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2033. 4,000 cases made.~BS

The brash red fruit is quite something, ranging from red currant jam to bramble berry pie and then a strong herbal note. Big and beefy, it is quite alcoholic, but turns a little jammy on the finish. Drink now, if you like a bold style.~JS

A dark powerful wine, the 2017 Ornello needs time to soften, as it is not anywhere near as open as the other wines in the range. Black cherry, leather, chocolate, herbs and dark spice emerge, but only with a great deal of reluctance. Readers need to be patient. Ornello is a blend of 40% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah, with the Cabernet and Syrah quite dominant today.~AG

Rocca di Frassinello

View all from Rocca di Frassinello
Rocca di FrassinelloLooking to expand beyond the heavily saturated Chianti Classico area, Castellare turned to the natural outlet of Maremma. What started as a small expansion plan took on a new dimension, as a unique 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. Extensive research led to a site selection in the hills formed by the two sides of the old Aurelia in Monteregio di Massa Marittima. The first vineyards were planted on 17 acres in 2000; however, today, this successful project oversees almost 200 acres of vineyards in an unrivalled microclimate for native varietals.
