External Reviews for T2251 Paleo Rosso Wsp
A full-throttle red, with lots of plum, berry and vanilla character and Indian spices underneath. Full, silky, wild and long. Cabernet Franc. Best after 2008.
Medium-deep ruby. Refined aromas of floral red berries and high-grade milk chocolate are somewhat overwhelmed by coconut and vanilla. Finely textured and lithe on the palate, with sneaky concentration to its redcurrant, raspberry, milk chocolate and mineral flavors. The long, nuanced finish features very fine tannins.
This Cabernet Franc is beautiful, with incredible succulence, persistence, heat, power and a full plate of enticing fragrances. Coffee, root beer, chocolate, Nutella, graham cracker and cherry liqueur are only a few elements of the winersquo;s complexity.
Red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of cherry, red berries and leather. Sweet, bright and focused, with very sound acidity framing the rich fruit flavors. Juicy and elegantly styled. This smooth and persistent red is one of the most successful wines of Italyrsquo;s 2002 vintage.

The 2001 Paleo might be considered a Mediterranean version of Cheveal Blanc with its fabulously sweet and refined nose of berry fruit, herbs, light spices and minerals, and an aromatic focus and precision which are sheer class. Polished, sinewy, and classy in its flavors, layered, complex, and with unequaled breed, this deceptively approachable wine will easily last another 20 years.
The 2004 Paleo (Cabernet Franc) is an intense, brooding wine imbued with the essence of dark fruit, scorched earth, grilled herbs, toasted oak and licorice. Made in a rich, super-concentrated style, this imposing Paleo will require patience. A second bottle took quite a bit of aeration before the elegance of its silky-textured tannins emerged. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2020.
The 2005 Paleo (Cabernet Franc) is impressive. Wild herbs, roasted coffee beans, new leather, minerals and dark fruit emerge from this long, refined wine. Although the intensity tapers off slightly on the mid-palate, this is an absolutely gorgeous wi... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2005 Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso 750ml
