2014 Rocca Di Frassinello ORNELLO MAREMMA TOSCANA DOC
Varietal: 40% Sangioveto, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah
The image used on the label represents the “Maremma cowboy” a symbol of elegance and strength typical of Maremma. Still today, Ornello is the name of the wooden lance used to move cattle. The only Rocca di Frassinello wine with Syrah, this wine has a full and rich character with a nice elegance and freshness, typical of the winery style.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red. On the nose it is intense and complex with notes of spices, mint, and chocolate. On the palate the wine, savory and long, is full-bodied and round with supple and velvety tannins.
Reviews: A rich style, showing cherry, plum, leather, earth and spice aromas and flavors, underlined by lively acidity. Finishes long and satisfying. 91 points — Wine Spectator
