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

A normal winter season and a cool and rainy start to spring followed by a long dry period. The hot early summer temperatures brought an early growth of the plants and the small difference between night and day temperatures led to a fast ripening of the early grape varieties in late August, whereas the Syrah and Cabernet Franc grapes were picked over the first two weeks of September. ->
