We followed a recommendation from friends and booked a guided tour of the Rocca di Frasinello winery. The road to get there was not impressive in quality, but the winery, the wine cellar and the place is highly impressive. Design, colours and the Etruscan "museum". We had a very competent guide who showed us around and answered all questions we came up with. The cellar with it magnificent concrete ceiling stretch and all the wine barrels was great to see. The wine tasting was also nice with competent guidance through to the Rocca wine at the top. The Baffenero was naturally enough not part of the tasting, but we can try that on our own. Recommendable winery to visit, even with young adults.

The tour was interesting with a great history explained. The custom made facility was very interesting to see and the wines we sampled were enjoyable :)

This beautiful and modern winery is also changing the approach to wine in Tuscany. While everyone knows the Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montelcino, this unique venture between Castellare di Castellina and Chateau Lafite is producing wonderful blends ready to drink or hold. We enjoyed a tasting of one white and four red wines. In addition, we were able to visit the cellar, or the theater of wine, a beautiful room holding 2,500 barrels. The room designed for maximum function as well as beauty allow for only 5 people to run the internal production.
Although we did not call in advance for a tour, we were able to enjoy the tasting and information provided by Giancarlo. His passions and enthusiasm for the wine and the building were the perfect combination for a delightful experience. And of course, we took one of each bottle with us to remember the day. Don't miss if you are close.

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
