The Winery

Le Macchiole

Le Macchiole was founded in 1983 by Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli in the Bolgheri region of Tuscany. They are most well-known for their IGT Toscana wines: the Cabernet Franc-based Paleo, the Merlot-based Messorio, and the Syrah-based Scrio. These wines are often described as the best example of these grapes in the region, especially since they are not indigenous to Bolgheri. The winery focuses on releasing mono-varietals that portray innovation and risk which is unusual for most of tradition-focused Tuscany. Since Eugenio’s sudden death in 2002, Cinzia has taken over the management of the property and the production of the wines. With around 60 acres of estate owned vineyards today, all of their land is organically farmed and perfectly-suited for their collectible wines.

JS95
Amazing aromas of sexy, decadent fruit with blackberry, dark chocolate and cedar. Full body with fine tannins and a long, long finish. Drink or hold. Better…
