Discover the excellence of Baffonero, the top wine of Rocca di Frassinello’s range, with a technical tasting of 4 vintages guided by our oenologist. A 100% Merlot with great structure and longevity, Baffonero takes its title from the namesake vineyard, among the first planted at Rocca di Frassinello. Born to be the challenger to Ornellaia’s Masseto, this wine has storied success with the critics since its first vintage (2007): today it’s considered to be one of the greatest Merlot’s in the world.
After the tasting, guests will spend a few hours discovering the identity of Rocca di Frassinello: a fascinating journey through time, from the futuristic architecture of Renzo Piano’s cellar, to Italo Rota’s exhibition – The Etruscans and Wine at Rocca di Frassinello – whose ancient finds prove the profound history of winemaking on this site, dating back almost three millennia ago. Concluding the visit in the cellar, a short walk leads to Rocca di Frassinello’s Etruscan archeological site, San Germano, freely accessible from within the property.
