A wonderful vintage from maturing vines, the fruit really comes into its own here. Intense, ruby red color hints at the sweet red berries and roses within. Enormous richness and surprising power shine through in the opulent fruit and the balanced dance of sweetness, dark fruit, and delicate spice. Perfect now, but will keep for another five years.
The 2015 Rocca di Frassinello is powerful, sumptuous and deeply expressive. An exotic mélange of raspberry jam, spice, new leather, chocolate, tobacco and grilled herbs gives the 2015 its decidedly flamboyant personality. This rich, heady coastal Tuscan red will appeal most to readers who enjoy racy, bold wines. The oak needs to settle down, but there is certainly plenty to look forward to.
