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

2006 featured a very even weather pattern. Following a quite cold and wet winter, spring was marked by warm and sunny days. Berry set was good, due to the little rainfall in June and July, and the veraison process was excellent, despite the lack of rainfall in August. Fortunately, temperatures never rose too high, which allowed the water supply to be sufficient for the optimal development of the grapes’ aromatic and production potential. ->
