Winemaker Notes

Paleo Rosso is one of the symbols of Bolgheri winemaking while maintaining a non-standardized wine style, and it is one of the world’s best-known Cabernet Francs. “Paleo” is the common name of a species of grass, Festuca Pratensis (of the Gramineae family), which grows wild along the Tuscan Coast.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Rich yet focused, with flavors of black currant, olive, tobacco and iron. Features a dense grain, yet all the components work together, with balance and light tannins on the fresh, coffee-tinged finish. Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2027
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Paleo (100% Cabernet Franc) shows an introverted personality, much like the Messorio from the same vintage. With a few stern swirls of the glass, the wine begins to show increased substance and grit with black fruit, cured leather and spice aromas. The wine oozes darkness overall. It appears opulent and bold in terms of aromas, yet the mouthfeel is more streamlined and compact instead. In terms of the palate, this edition of Paleo definitely needs to flesh out further with additional cellar aging.

COMMENTARY: Cabernet Franc from Tuscany? The 2014 Le Macchiole puts the world on notice. TASTING NOTES: This wine is Old World built and brazenly good. Its aromas of black fruit, dried herbs, and earth take on a life their own. Pair it with pan-seared pork chop with heirloom tomatoes. (Tasted: March 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Le Macchiole, Italy
Le Macchiole  Winery Image

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.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
