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. Eugenio passed away in 2002 at young age and his wife, Cinzia continues on with their dream. 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.
Le Macchiole doesn’t just produce great reds; in fact, Paleo’s alter ego, Paleo Bianco, hit the scene in 1991. It is produced in extremely small quantities. This wine boasts equal parts intensity, flavor, and depth. This is a wine that surprises, especially in terms of its ability to age. Enjoy this with shellfish like lobster or scallops, white meats, grilled vegetables.
