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 winter season with abundant rainfall and mild temperatures followed by a temperate and dry start to spring led to early budbreak and to an early start to the growth cycle, which then went back to normal with rainfall in May. June, which was very hot, sped up the growth cycle again. The months of July and August were very hot and sunny, with above-average temperatures. Ripening was performed about one week ahead of normal schedule. ->
