First bottled in 2004, this wine is the purest and most unadulterated expression of Bolgheri for Le Macchiole. It is a red that possesses grace and intensity and that is eminently drinkable without compromising structure and complexity.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah aged for 10 months, 70% in oak barriques 3rd and 4th use, 30% in concrete.
The Le Macchiole 2021 Bolgheri Rosso is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The wine kicks it up from the start with bold but also very fresh fruit tones of dark cherry and blackberry. The quality of the primary fruit is spot-on, especially in this balanced vintage, and you get fun, punchy flavors to pair with grilled meats and a side a French Fries. The wine has enough structure, acidity and elegant tannins to stand up to the fat in those foods. Anticipated Maturity: 2023-2030
