Rocca di Frassinello 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A very rich, structured red, with toasty oak, coffee and ripe fruit that fascinates with warm thoughts of Tuscany. Give this wine a little time in bottle to understand. Best after 2012.

The 2008 Rocca di Frassinello is especially inward and brooding. Dark cherries, tar, smoke and licorice flesh out nicely with time in the glass. The 2008 remains quite reticent and inexpressive despite the wine’s considerable juiciness. Ideally, the wine is best left alone for another year or two, if not longer. Sweet hints of oak frame the finish. The Rocca is 60% Sangioveto, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2023.
