THE WINE

'Baffonero' takes its name from the homonymous vineyard, 100% Merlot, among the first planted in Rocca di Frassinello, the company that has benefited from being born as a joint venture between Castellare di Castellina and Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite, the most world famous chateau. The Baffonero vineyard is at the foot of the cellar designed by Renzo Piano, with a perfect exposure. A Merlot whose wine is made in steel and whose maturation continues in new French oak barrels for about 14 months. A great red that in the glass is revealed with intensity and elegance, richness and great persistence. Excellent for aging.

Historical company of the Chianti Classico, Castellare di Castellina, is born today in 1968, thanks to the fusion of five different farms. A magical place where the vineyards - thirty thousand hectares of total - are perfectly integrated into the environment, between forests and other crops An area where good exposure, good drainage of water, soils mixed with limestone marc, galestro and little clay, have always provided well-structured, intense wines and adapted to a long aging in the bottle. Castellare Castellina in time it grew, in fact, in 2004, Rocca di Frassinello was born in the heart of Maremma, in partnership with Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite, a splendid estate along the Tuscan coast where the best of Italy and France meet; a place where sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and shiraz find their home in perfect harmony leading to the emergence of wines of a certain charm, intensity and el Rossi who immediately meet the tastes of an extremely heterogeneous audience and whose project is complete with the construction of the new cellar, according to a project projected Renzo Piano. Bolgheri and Scansano, in a geographical area where soil characteristics are the same as those of the Chianti and Montalcino soils, on a total surface of five hundred acres, are currently ninety plants planted with vineyards. Among the rows, the constant breeze from the sea fights any form of moisture, ensuring a mild climate both in winter and summer. This is how they come to harvest grape grapes, precious and concentrated in every smaller organoleptic nuance, which in the cellar, exploiting essential but functional shapes in everything and everything, are transformed into absolute labels. From the Ornello to the Poggio alla Guardia, from "Son La Pia" to "Wine of Peace", from "Renzo Piano Senatore" to the famous "Baffonero", are all wines, those labeled "Rocca di Frassinello" the language of the highest excellence in Tuscany and beyond. Just fabulous wines.
