Just spent two days in Tuscany for winetasting and adding a chapter of additional tuscany winemakers to my wine blog. After a fantastic visit at Le Mortelle/Antinori we arrived around 5pm at Rocca di Frassinello. Although visit of wine shop and tour should be open until 7pm everything was closed. After calling and explaining the interest and telling them that we are waiting in front of the door a staff member told me that they closed earlier and i should come back the next day. We left and will never come back!! Good luck with your attitude and maybe re-consider your customer service.....

The biggest disappointment of our 2 week trip. We planned to come here on our last full day in Italy. It is off the beaten path and we braved dirt roads and various tractors to get here. We were so excited when we saw the magnificent building. It said the winery was open until 7 PM and a tour would be at 5, when we arrived at 4:50. Unfortunately the doors were locked. It gave a number to call if during "open" hours and we could hear the phone ring in the store before going to voice mail. We knocked as well--nothing--what a way to ruin a final day in Italy when we could have spent the hour detour doing something wonderful. DO NOT PATRONIZE THESE PEOPLE

We were here on a wine tasting event combined with the Festival Melodie del Vino, featuring a concert by Stefano "Cocco" Cantini and Simone Zanchini.
The place is unique, absolutely to be visited. The winery was designed by Renzo Piano and it is beautifully set in an inspiring landscape. The tasting room is a glass case with a continuous and open view all around. It is set in the middle of what they call the "sagrato" (church square).
Below the sagrato is the cellar of the barriques, almost a cathedral. This is where the concert took place. Together some famous covers and a few of his original musical compositions, Stefano "Cocco" Cantini played a reproduction of an Etruscan flute. The music was quite impressive, indeed.
In the area several Etruscan tombs were discovered in the 1970's and the ownership contributed to the creation of a Museum where some of the objects discovered in the excavations. One in particular is an ancient STAMNOS, a wine vase, decorated with a Dionysian procession.
We also tasted a reproduction of the Etruscan wine prepared by the archeologists of the University of Florence who are excavating in the area.
We greatly enjoyed the evening: wine tasting, music listening in a perfect panorama.

Thank Luisa B
