Rocca di Frassinello has been proud to open Anteprime di Toscana 2019, the event that features the best of the Tuscan wine production, organized by Regione Toscana in collaboration with PromoFirenze, held at Fortezza da Basso, in Florence.

An exclusive video has unveiled the vision of architect Renzo Piano, designer of the winery in Maremma Toscana, on wine and architecture. The video was shown during the press conference of saturday 9th of february 2019 in front of 200 national and international wine journalists.

Places with a soul, architecture that do not ends up being a “monument to itself”, the importance of the functionality of the spaces and the deep connection with wine: these are the topics of the video where the most famous Italian architect tells the genesis of the project that gave birth to his first and only cellar ever designed, through anecdotes, private visions, suggestions and exchange of point of views with Mr Paolo Panerai (close friend and Rocca di Frassinello owner).

A unique and unpublished contribution that reveals the deepest soul of Rocca di Frassinello, the winery born from a joint venture between Castellare di Castellina in Chianti Classico and Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Château Lafite, already ranked by Architectural Digest among “The Best Vineyard Designs Around the World”.

Rocca di Frassinello soul is well expressed in its wine range, starting from le grand vin Rocca di Frassinello to Baffonero, 100% Merlot beloved by Renzo Piano, already honorary member of the exclusive Baffonero Club: as an expert sailor, Piano loves the friendly challenge launched by Baffonero to Masseto, in the spirit of the America’s Cup.

Since 2017, Rocca di Frassinello is part of Toscana Wine Architecture, promoted by Regione Toscana in collaboration with Vetrina Toscana, Federazione Strada del Vino, dell’olio e dei sapori di Toscana and Fondazione Sistema Toscana. A group of “big” and important wineries that joins together, as they all believe in an even bigger goal: to promote a vision of contemporary Tuscany that meets the standards of the ancestors improving what they left us as a gift in time. Fourteen wineries that are the new custodians of a common landscape which is a true heritage to humanity.
