Paleo Rosso


First produced in 1989, this incredible wine is the symbol of the winery, and it truly epitomizes Bolgheri. At first, the wine was a classic Bordeaux blend but became a Cabernet Franc monovarietal in 2001; since then, it has been a huge success. The name “paleo” refers to a wild herb found on the Tuscan coast, and it symbolizes a strong local identity and the will to reach all goals.

Harvest Reports

The year got off to a smooth start with winter temperatures within the normal range. Spring weather was also quite favorable, including the rainfall, which is typical of the area this time of the year. The month of July was extremely hot, rainless and followed by moderate rainfall during the month of August. Temperatures rose during the final stages of ripening. These weather conditions led to the production of intensely colored and aromatic grapes with high sugar content. The slightly early ripening pushed harvest ahead of usual schedule. ->
