Baffonero Rocca di Frassinello 2015 (750ML)
94 Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate: "This is a wine of lofty ambitions and soaring promises. At this price point, it would be impossible to expect less. The 2015 Maremma Toscana Baffonero (100% Merlot) is indeed a beautiful and persuasive wine. It opens to an inky dark color with rich concentration and a full-bodied approach. It flows over the palate with enriched texture. The finish is smooth, seamless and powerful. This vintage is coming together nicely despite the evidently ripe and sweet quality of fruit. Cherry liqueur, blackberry preserves, cinnamon and honey-roasted almond emerge from the bouquet." 11/17
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Baffonero, the estate's 100% Merlot, is classy and polished from start to finish. Chocolate, plum and leather appear first, followed by beautifully lifted scents of star anise, white chocolate, orange peel and spice. Stylistically, the 2015 is quite a bit more restrained than most prior vintages. It will be interesting to see if that is reflection of the year or representative of where the wine will goi in coming vintages." 4/18
94 Points, James Suckling: "This is dense and very polished with beautifully silky tannins and plenty of warm chocolate, currant and hints of Mediterranean herb character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold." 8/17
