ROCCA DI FRASSINELLO AT 54TH VINITALY WITH TWO NEW TOP WINES: ROCCA DI FRASSINELLO BIANCO AND ROCCA DI FRASSINELLO SAN GERMANODuring Vinitaly wine fair, Rocca di Frassinello will present two new top-of-the-range wines: Rocca di Frassinello Bianco – Maremma Toscana DOC, 100% Vermentino, and Rocca di Frassinello San Germano – a grand cru Maremma Toscana DOC from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and, in a smaller part, Sangioveto, harvested in the vineyards that grow on the hill of San Germano, where the vine was already cultivated 3,000 years ago by the Etruscans.
Two great labels that enrich the wine range of the cellar, designed by Renzo Piano in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, and born from a joint venture between Castellare di Castellina and Chateau Lafite. Rocca di Frassinello Bianco is the best expression of Vermentino, a vine that, thanks to the unique characteristics of soils with a significant presence of calcareous marl and marl skeleton, combined with the benefits of the breeze coming from the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea, has found at Rocca di Frassinello an ideal terroir. The best bunches, carefully hand-picked and selected during the harvest, and 10 months of permanence on the lees, allow to obtain a white wine of great structure, with a full and silky sip, rich in floral aromas, citrus notes and with a mineral component which gives flavor in the finish. A harmonious and persistent white that is also very versatile, ideal to pair with grilled fish, shellfish and white meats. A wine that can age in the bottle for several years.
