Le Macchiole
Bolgheri, 09:51 A.M.


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 year which can be described as cool, marked by a very long winter, a delayed start to spring and milder temperatures. The beginning of the summer season brought below-average temperatures which then soared in the months of August and September, which saw no rain. From mid-September on, weather conditions were ideal, leading to excellent ripening of the grapes. ->
