Rocca di Frassinello Baffonero
Price per bottle 0,75l
The big Rocca di Frassinello project came into being not from a great but from a small idea. Rocca di Frassinello is located near Grossetto in the North of the Maremma region of Toscana. The winery is beautiful with one of the largest cellars in the world designed by Renzo Piano. Rocca is actually a joint venture between two heavy-weights of the wine world, Chianti producer Castellare di Castellina and the legendary Lafite from France. The Rocca di Frassinello became a big project when happened the arrival of Domain Baron De Rothschild-Lafite, making the first join venture between an Italian and French producer.
