Winemaker Notes

There are so much essence-like fruits on the nose of this Bolgheri Rosso, from blackberry perfume and dark-cherry compote to fresher elements of rosemary, lavender, hot stones and citrus. Full body with generous fruit, but the firm and beautifully woven tannin backbone keeps the palate fine and elegant. Very long on the finish.

Full body with generous fruit, but the firm and beautifully woven tannin backbone keeps the palate fine and elegant. Very long on the finish. Drink in 2024.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

There is a gorgeous nuttiness to the 2015 Paleo. It is a highly aromatic expression of Cabernet Franc, with a bouquet of roses and some notes of red cherry. The vineyard team was careful in timing the harvest and fermentations to make sure the fruit did not come in too ripe and so they could maintain the natural freshness of the grapes. The oak used is moderately to highly toasted so they could get more of those nutty notes instead of the more common coffee or chocolate aromas we associate with barrique. It is aged for 22 months and the overall result is incredible.


W&S 95
Wine & Spirits

Paleo was first vinified as a monovarietal cabernet franc in 2001, and it continues to be one of Bolgheri’s best. Dark and voluptuous in the 2015 vintage, its ripe black and red plum flavors are layered with notes of soft tobacco, tarragon and dark chocolate. Plush tannins cinch the flavors together as notes of anise and mint emerge. Beautiful now, it will be even better in five years.

WS 94
Wine Spectator
This red is sleek and concentrated, featuring black currant, black cherry, licorice, tobacco and leather flavors. Balanced and juicy, with a long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. The firm structure will allow this to age.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Black currant, exotic spice, coconut and espresso mingle with whiffs of violet and cedar. On the smooth, delicious palate, fine-grained tannins give elegant support to cassis, pipe tobacco, chocolate, licorice and coffee. It's surprisingly fresh for the vintage. A hint of grilled bell pepper adds depth to the finish. Drink 2020–2027.

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.
