User Reviews for Paleo le Macchiole

Winemaker's Notes:

“The wines of Le Macchiole are, for me, one of the major reasons why this district has been so successful.” - Lodovico Antinori"Until the early 1980’s, wines produced in Bolgheri were largely focused on quantity over quality. The changes that developed thereafter were largely due to the few producers recognizing the potential of a Bordeaux winemaking model which favored long ageing in small barrels. In 1983, the year when the first specifications for the protection of Bolgheri DOC wines were approved, the late Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli planted the vineyards of Le Macchiole at the foot of the Bolgheri Hills. Six years later, in 1989, the first vintage of Paleo Rosso was produced; Messorio and Scrio produced later in 1994. In 1991, Le Macchiole began working with famed oenologist Luca d’Attoma. The estate focuses on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Le Macchiole joins Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri." -Importer"Paleo Rosso is the one that I feel closest to and the one that excites me most. He can pleasantly surprise you And is also the one that will unexpectedly give you the greatest feeling and passion. He enters your soul in a way that is persuasive and intriguing, without ever being excessive in his expressions. " -Winery
