Baffonero Igt 2011 – Rocca di Frassinello


Baffonero Igt 2011 – Rocca di Frassinello

100% Merlot. A deep ruby red colour. An explosion of fruit with an unending range of black fruits, in particular blackberry and blueberry wrapped in a soft veil of vanilla. In the glass the aromatic components evolve towards tobacco, chocolate and a touch of coffee.
The complexity is immediately apparent to the palate with a fullness that remains throughout the tasting. Full, vigorous, fresh and extremely enjoyable.

Vintage: 2011

    Reblogged this on Sassi Italy Tours and commented:
    Generally not a Merlot drinker, but when it comes from Italy (bias alert level: maximum) I tend to enjoy it a lot more. Less oak, typically, methinks.
