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 mild winter throughout the first part of the year led to a very early budbreak. A major frost event (-3C) on the eve of Easter caused significant losses here and there, leading to a natural green harvesting process. Spring weather was quite cool, with temperatures rising in May. Summer within the norm, very hot from mid-August. Shots of cold air arrived, without rainfall, in early September, which slowed down the ripening process, helping them achieve a more than satisfactory ripeness. ->
