"The 'Maremma cowboy', a symbol of elegance and strength typical of the earth of Maremma. Still today Ornello is the name of the lance wood used to move the cattle. The only one blended with Syrah. Balsamic notes and roasted coffee at the nose and a full and rich wine with a nice elegance and freshness, typical of Rocca di Frassinello style." —winemaker

Blend: 40% Sangioveto, 20% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot
"The 2012 Maremma Toscana Ornello is a blend of Sangioveto, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. It shows a full and voluptuous style although it is hard to recognize the varietal characteristics given the various contrasting elements of the blend. You get the acidity of Sangiovese with the aromatic softness of both the Merlot and the Syrah backed by the natural structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Ornello may be lost among the vast sea of super Tuscan-inspired reds, but this wine shows very attractive features nonetheless." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Taut and dense, showing cherry, mushroom, leather and chocolate aromas and flavors. Fresh and complex, with assertive tannins that need time to integrate. Fine length. Best from 2016 through 2023. 4,000 cases made." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
