Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana 2014, Tuscany, Italy
PRESS: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93 points. "Brooding and thick, the 2014 Maremma Toscana Rocca di Frassinello takes all the intensity of the vintage and pours it into the glass. That's saying a lot because this vintage infamously lacked in intensity overall, although you'd never know it here. Rocca di Frassinello makes good on the excellent environmental factors that contribute to this wine. There is the sunshine of Coastal Tuscany, the light sea breezes and the reddish Maremma soils. This Bordeaux blend born in Tuscany offers dark fruit aromas, savory spice and bitter chocolate. The tannins are soft, but the wine does deliver solid structure to keep it firmly stitched together."

Intense ruby red color. Sweet red berries, roses and licorice are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this great red. Polish and supremely elegant personality. Great structure with a pleasant long finish.
