The Baffonero Rocca di Frassinello is made out 100% Merlot and shows a very intense colour. The nose is a true fruity explosion with an endless range of black berries, particularly blackberries and blueberries, coated with a light hint of vanilla. On the palate, it evolves towards tobacco, chocolate and coffee. Complex, full, robust with a fresh and very pleasant final.
Parker : 95 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Baffonero definitely steals the show. This pure expression of Merlot presents enormous softness and richness in the form of black cherry, chocolate and exotic spice. The wine shows impressive endurance and elegantly textured tannins. This is one to keep in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
