Created in honor of the ‘butteri’, that remains the symbol of the Maremma region, strong and elegant at the same time. The Ornello is a long, pointed stick that is still used today for driving cattle. It stands out for its substantial percentage of Syrah grapes that make it very full and rich, nonetheless retaining the typical elegance and freshness of Rocca di Frassinello wines.

Smell and taste: On the nose it has balsamic and roasted coffee notes. On the palate there are notes of woody undergrowth and soft, velvety tannins.
Serving suggestions: It pairs well with meat dishes, including roasts, cold cuts and medium-mature cheeses.
Serve at: 18-20° C

Drinking window: Drink or keep.

About Rocca di Frassinello:: .Rocca di Frassinello lies on the right hillside heading north that forms on either side of the old Aurelia road and which, thanks to the first major Roman road, forms a sort of canyon through which the sea wind blowing from the plain between Castiglione della Pescaia and Grosseto travels across. This constant breeze takes away any moisture from the air and provides for an even milder climate, both during the winter and summer months. Rocca di Frassinello chose Renzo Piano to build probably the most famous wine cellars in the world: the barrel room set in a central underground position, making it possible to naturally maintain a stable humidity and temperature. An imposing 40 by 40 square metre space.
