Macchiole Paleo Rosso IGT 2007
Named for the vineyard of its provenance, Paleo Rosso is the flagship wine for Le Macchiole and was the first wine in Bolgheri to made entirely from Cabernet Franc. Ruby red with violet flecks, its red fruit aroma offers notes of yellow and black pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg. Clean on the palate, it finishes with elegant minerality, ripe fruit, and a hint of balsamic.
Super Super Toscan! Cabernet Franc tastes thin but strong tannin and thick flavor.
External Reviews for Macchiole Paleo Rosso IGT
The 2007 Paleo Rosso (Cabernet Franc) offers up compelling, nuanced layers of smoke, dark cherries, mocha and grilled herbs in a style that reveals considerable richness and opulence but also quite a bit of verve, minerality and sheer structure. The wine has begun to shut down considerably since it was bottled and will require quite a bit of patience. Still, it is impossible to miss the silkiness of the tannins, the impeccable purity of the finish and the wine's exceptional overall sense of harmony. This brilliant effort will be a joy to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. (100% cabernet franc; 14% alcohol) Bright ruby. Precise aromas of strawberry, raspberry, graphite and iron filings, with a suave undercurrent of white pepper. A strong violet note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, nicely lifting the red berry and mineral flavors. Finishes impressively pure, focused and creamy-smooth, with a lingering floral note. **...
