Winemaker Notes

Brilliant ruby colour, this wine exhibits aromas of red fruits, blueberries, blackberries, spices and light, well-integrated vanilla notes. Medium-bodies, it possesses sweet, ripe tannins, and a balanced, refreshing acidity.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Le Macchiole'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 estate's second selection of vineyards. The quality of the 2008 augurs extremely well for the estate’s higher-end bottlings. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Wine Enthusiast
Le Macchiole'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.

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

Le Macchiole, Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy

Long before it was fashionable, Eugenio Campolmi saw the potential of his homeland, buying his first vineyard in Bolgheri in 1975 baptised "Le Macchiole". In 1987, he hired famed oenologist Vittorio Fiore as a consultant before the later was joined by Luca d'Attoma for years later. In contrast to his renowned neighbors who focused on Bordeaux blends, Campolmi focused on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Soon Le Macchiole joined Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri. Following Eugenio's death in 2002, his wife Cinzia Merli, who shares her husband's passion, took over at the estate. Working with Luca D'Attoma, she has carried on her husband's legacy by continuing to make great Tuscan wines.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
