Le Macchiole

First released in 2004, Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso is the most recent of Le Macchiole wines. This is a thoughtfully defined project stemming from the vineyards. In fact the grapes used to produce this wine are from a series of plots, primarily consisting of the younger vines, precisely identified for the Bolgheri Rosso. The grape harvest, winemaking and aging are devised produce a Bolgheri DOC made in the tradition of Bordeaux offerings typical of our area, yet showing characteristics which differentiate it. A fresh wine, complex but easily appreciable, it is perfect for the table and with a diverse combinations of food. Bolgheri Rosso is our “calling card” in that it distinguishes Le Macchiole by demonstrating our personal interpretation of the Bolgheri terroir.

Paleo Rosso

Paleo Rosso arrived in 1989. It is the wine that has evolved well over time: born originally as a classic Bordeaux blend in 2001, eventually arriving as a 100% Cabernet Franc. This is a beautiful story of obstinacy in challenging the stereotype of Cabernet Franc, which is already difficult to produce, and even more so as a pure varietal wine. Today Paleo Rosso is a symbol of Bolgheri despite its distinct individualism and originality within the region; it is one of the most famous Italian Cabernet Franc wines in the world. The word Paleo is a common name referring to the “Festuca Pratensis “ of the family Gramineae, an herb spontaneously growing on the Tuscan coast.
