Le Macchiole is located in Bolgheri, Tuscany, on the stunning Etruscan Coast. The landscape is magical, where rolling hills are blanketed by forest and where vineyards and olive trees meet the Tyrrhenian Sea. Le Macchiole was founded in 1983 on the desire of Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli to turn their passion for wine into their life dream. It was a revolutionary project rooted in their hometown of Bolgheri, at the time not as famous as now. The idea was simple but decisive: to originate in the vineyard, investing completely in research and experimentation in planting including varieties lesser used in Bolgheri. There are 24 hectares of estate owned vineyards, organically farmed with each harvest producing 5 wines: Paleo Bianco – Toscana IGT, Bolgheri Rosso – DOC Bolgheri, Paleo Rosso – Toscana IGT, Scrio – Toscana IGT and Messorio – Toscana IGT.
The Bolgheri Rosso is made from grapes sourced from very specific and young vineyards. It is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 11 months in oak barriques (80% 2nd and 3rd fill) and concrete (20%). Ripe red fruit, herbal, fresh and easily enjoyable.
