Baffonero 2015 Rocca di Frassinello
Price per bottle 0,75l
Baffonero takes its name from a vineyard, 100% Merlot, that was one of the first to be planted at Rocca di Frassinello. The company was born of a joint venture between Castellare di Castellina and Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite, the most famous chateau in the world. The Baffonero vineyard lies below the winery designed by Renzo Piano, on terrain with perfect exposure.
Intense ruby red. The nose is fruity with aromas reminiscent of various black fruits, in particular blackberries, blueberries and vanilla. In the glass, the aromatic component changes, evolving towards tobacco, chocolate and a slight hint of coffee. In the mouth it has a perceptible complexity. Full and robust with a freshness that makes it long and pleasing.
Pairing is recommended with equally structured foods such as red meat stews and game, as well as sharp cheeses.
