Steve Tanzer 93 points - Ripe and opulent, delivering blackberry, pomegranate, licorice and leather flavors, this harmonious and well-structured wine features a long, fruit- and spice-filled aftertaste. Very open, despite the firm tannins. Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2029.—B.S.

2009 Rocca di Frassinello Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana "(a blend of 60% sangiovese and 20% each cabernet sauvignon and merlot; 70% new oak): Very bright, full ruby. Sappy aromas of cassis, blueberry, mocha, licorice and vanillin oak. Juicy and lively on the palate, thanks to harmonious acidity that lifts the dense, sweetly spicy red and dark cherry flavors. Finishes with substantial but very polished tannins that hit the palate quite late. A wine of surefire potential, and yet another strong showing in this estate's lineup." 93+ points -- Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar "The 2009 Rocca di Frassinello impresses for its polish and supremely elegant personality. Sweet red berries, roses and licorice are among the aromas and flavors that emerge from this pliant, polished red. This is a more feminine style than the 2008 and ultimately a touch more refined as well. The Rocca is 60% Sangioveto, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021." 93 points -- Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate "Focused and intense, offering cherry, raspberry, licorice and tea flavors. The ample fruit is offset by assertive tannins, leaving a grainy finish now. Needs time to integrate. Best from 2014 through 2025." 92 points -- Wine Spectator

Wine maker notes
The top label, “le grand vin” under the classification of Bordeaux, the highest expression of the Italian-French project. A wine able to mix strength, intensity and elegance with delicate tannins which express its fullness. It achieved a peak right from the first harvest in 2004. A highly competitive wine, says Christian Le Sommer, enologist of Les Domaines Baron de Rothschild-Lafite, who created it in tandem with Alessandro Cellai.
