Critical Acclaim

JS93 JamesSuckling.com Thursday, August 6, 2015

"A firm and silky wine with blueberry, walnut and coffee character. Full-bodied, bright and fruity. Delicious red. Wonderful pure merlot with so much fruit and style. Drink or hold." (93 pts.)

SP93 Wine Spectator Aug 31, 2015

"A dense, extracted red, with earth, blackberry and plum flavors, featuring solid tannins and a piquant, spicy feel. A bit burly on the finish, yet richly textured, featuring sweet fruit for balance. The tannins become more integrated with air, so decant now or age. Merlot. Best from 2017 through 2024. 250 cases made." (93 pts.)

VN94 Vinous Oct 2015

"The 2013 Baffonero is superb in this vintage. Nuanced and delineated throughout, the 2013 offers much more sophistication than has been the case in previous vintages. Mint, sage, lavender, sweet spices and mocha are laced into the pliant finish. All things considered, the 2013 Baffonero is a pretty delicate Merlot by Maremma standards." (94 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Jan 2017

"This wine is intended to challenge, and perhaps provoke, Merlot king Masseto. The Rocca di Frassinello 2013 Maremma Toscana Baffonero hails from a three-hectare single vineyard on the Tuscan Coast. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation is executed in concrete eggs and the wine is aged in 100% new French oak. The first vintage made was 2007 and bottle production tops 3,000 today. This current edition of the wine clocks in at a whopping 39.4 grams per liter of dry extract and all that density definitely makes a bold statement. This wine is thick and vinous with rich primary aromas of blackberry and cherry liqueur. Indian spice and cured tobacco are presented with lavish abandon. This is the ultimate statement wine, for sure, but I’m not sure it has Masseto trembling in its boots just yet." (95 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
