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.

The veraison process set in about ten days ahead of usual schedule (between late July and early August). Summer got off to a good start, but then temperatures soared into a scorching heatwave from mid-August through mid-September, bringing ripening and harvesting ten days ahead of normal. ->
