Focused on the richness of merlot, this blend also includes cabernet sauvignon, syrah and sangiovese. Itandrsquo;s a bold, juicy, black-fruited wine, the tannins as smooth as dark chocolate. Open for filet mignon with mushrooms.

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: 2010-2016.

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.

Le Macchioleandrsquo;s Bolgheri Rosso blend (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Sangiovese) delivers an honest, but rich bouquet of black fruit, coffee, spice and chocolate shadings. The oak used here is two and three years old but has shaped a soft, velvety mouthfeel nonetheless.

Le Macchioleandrsquo;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 estateandrsquo;s second selection of vineyards. The quality of the 2008 augurs extremely well for the estateandrsquo;s higher-end bottlings.

From one of Italy'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 - 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.
