Blackberry, flowers and hints of toasty oak on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft yet chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to mellow. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese and Syrah. Best after 2010.

An attractive red, with berry and meaty aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Very good, but lacks some depth of fruit and complexity. Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and Sangiovese. Drink now.

Long before it was fashionable, Eugenio Campolmi saw the potential of his homeland, buying his first vineyard in Bolgheri in 1975 and Le Macchiole was born. In 1987, he hired famed oenologist Vittorio Fiore as a consultant and then four years later Luca d'Attoma. In contrast to his better known neighbors who focused on Bordeaux blends, Campolmi focused on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Following Eugenio's death in 2002, his wife Cinzia Merli, who shares her husband's passion took over at the estate. Working with Luca D'Attoma, she has carried on her husband's legacy by continuing to make great Tuscan wines.

The 2006 Bolgheri Rosso (Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah, Sangiovese) opens with fragrant, inviting aromatics that lead to a sweet core of expansive dark fruit. This juicy, soft-textured wine offers terrific drinking at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2010andndash;2016.

From one of Italyrsquo;s top estates, this Merlot (50%), Cabernet Franc (30%), Syrah (10%) and Sangiovese (10%) blend is a high toned thoroughbred. Medium-full bodied, but oh, so young mdash; the purity and quality of the fruit are outstanding. Comparable to a grand cru classe Margaux, with mineral and structure to last 15 years. The fruit is subdued at this stage, but the potential is obvious. Add this beauty to the cellar.

Berry and hints of herbs on the nose lead to a medium body, with currant and berries. Fresh finish. Chewy. Give this some time.

Le Macchiole's 2008 Bolgheri Rosso is a gorgeous wine. Ripe dark fruit melds into flowers, smoke, licorice, tar and minerals as this fresh, vinous red opens up in the glass. There is a wonderful purity and sheer density to the fruit that caresses the palate all the way through to the round, engaging finish. This is one of the more important vintages of the Bolgheri Rosso I can remember. Simply put, it is terrific. The Rosso is made from the estate's second selection of vineyards. The quality of the 2008 augurs extremely well for the estate's higher-end bottlings.
