Winemaker Notes

Alessandro Cellai

Rocca di Frassinello

by Alessandro Cellai
Intense ruby red. The nose is fruity with aromas reminiscent of various black fruits, in particular blackberries, blueberries and vanilla. In the glass, the aromatic component changes, evolving towards tobacco, chocolate and a slight hint of coffee. In the mouth it has a perceptible complexity. Full and robust with a freshness that makes it long and pleasing


Sustainably Made
