Le Macchiole
Bolgheri, 10:38 A.M.


Bolgheri is located on the Etruscan Coast between the hills and the sea in a natural, overwhelmingly beautiful paradise. And it is in Bolgheri that Le Macchiole has been cultivating its vineyards since 1983. It was a territory that was literally discovered out of nothing; the brainchild of visionary experiments; a peripheral, unknown corner of the Tuscan coast far from the classical winemaking history of Tuscany that nonetheless became one of the most important players on the Tuscan – and Italian – wine scene. The first regulations for the appellation date back to 1983, while the DOC was established at the beginning of 1984. The characteristics of the land together with the dry, gently ventilated climate, the temperatures that are slightly lower than the rest of the Tuscan coast, and the unique brightness of the area all contribute to the definition of a typically Mediterranean environment particularly well-suited to growing varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah. Excellent results are also seen in the cultivation of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Viognier, and Vermentino. The soils in Bolgheri demonstrate a high degree of variability, so much so that 27 separate soil types have been identified within the appellation. Most of the terrain in the area has clayey, sandy alkaline terrain with notable depth and a mineral skeleton that is very fine but nonetheless substantial. All of these are perfect conditions for the production of elegant wines with long aging potential.
