Rocca di Frassinello IGT

The top label, “le grand vin” under the classification of Bordeaux, the highest expression of the Italian-French project. A wine able to mix strength, intensity and elegance with delicate tannins which express its fullness. It achieved a peak right from the first harvest in 2004. A highly competitive wine, says Christian Le Sommer, enologist of Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild- Lafite, who created it in tandem with Alessandro Cellai.
