Scrio


This deep, spicy red was first produced in 1994, and the inspiration for its creation was the desire to produce a 100% Syrah, one of Le Macchiole’s favorite grapes. Rare and original and produced in very small quantities, Scrio quickly became a benchmark in Bolgheri. The name of the wine, inspired by a Tuscan expression that means “pure, candid, whole,” perfectly describes its defining characteristics.

Harvest Reports

The beginning of spring was marked by abundant rainfall, in particular, in April and May, and below-average temperatures. Summer, in the months of June and July, did not see a lot of rainfall. Temperatures were very high in August. Despite the scorching hot, our vines developed excellently and provided a good yield, owing also to the water supply stored over the spring months. ->
