Designed by Pritzker Prize winner Renzo Piano, Tuscany’s Rocca di Frassinello opened in 2007, the result of a partnership between Paolo Panerai, owner of Castellare di Castellina in Chianti Classico, and Baron Eric de Rothschild of the world-famous Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite. The winery combines traditional forms of Tuscan architecture with an industrial theme. A rectangular tower holds heliostats that reflect light into the building interior.
