"A bright and fruity red with aromas and flavors of plums, cherries and spices. Lots of chocolate undertones, too. Medium to full body and a delicious finish. Some salty undertones add to the complexity. Drink in 2020".~JS

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.
