Rocca di Frassunelo Ornello .750L Tuscany Italy


Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah

Castellare di Castellina was born of the union of four estates (Castellare, Caselle, San Niccolo and Le Case) on the initiative of Paolo Panerai, with the aim of producing wine of the best possible quality.
Vinous 92 points - The 2015 Ornello is alluring, ripe, radiant, totally seductive, and super-expressive. Succulent red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, exotic spice and tobacco notes are given an extra kick of richness and voluptuousness in this racy, engaging red from Rocca di Frassinello..April/2018
James Suckling 91 points - A red with plenty of spice and berry character. Full to medium body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A little tight now. Better in 2019 when it opens..August/2017
These are some of the very best wines I have tasted from proprietor Paolo Panerai and his long time winemaker, Alessandro Cellai. The 2015s are rich and deep, as these wines always are, but they also have quite a bit of nuance to them as well. From Tuscany New Releases: Maremma, Montepulciano & More (Apr 2018) by Antonio Galloni
