The Rocca di Frassinello winery was born from an ambitious project with a simple idea: to invest in a new territory in the center of the Maremma, with lands similar to those of the most famous wine areas of Tuscany, but with different temperatures. Thus, in the enchanting scenery of the Maremma, Rocca di Frassinello is dedicated to the creation of blends of native and international vines. It is one of the rare cases of an Italian-French joint venture in the production of wine. On the one hand Paolo Panerai founder of Castellare di Castellina, on the other the Baron Eric de Rothschild Lafite, one of the most famous names in the world of French wines. An ambitious project crowned by great labels. One of the greatest architects in the world designed the new cellar: Renzo Piano.

Poggio alla Guardia Vigne Alte is the only Rocca di Frassinello wine not aged in barrique to obtain greater drinkability and immediate taste on the palate. It's a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small part of Syrah which gives the wine a peculiar spicy note. The harvest is at the end of August for the Merlot and at the end of September for the other varieties, followed by the vinification process in steel and aging in concrete tanks for at least 12 months, to which another 4 months in the bottle are added. Ideal with traditional Maremma dishes such as acquacotta, spaghetti alla buttera and pappardelle with wild boar sauce.
