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

The winter season saw rather low temperatures and some snowfall. Excellent weather conditions in spring, with mild temperatures. Warm and sunny weather in June and July, with occasional rainfall, allowing for the veraison process to set in early. August, instead, was quite cold with average temperatures around 24°C and heavy rainfall in mid-August. Some rain in September as well, but the sea breeze dried the bunches up quickly. Owing to the good job done in the vineyards, we harvested ripe and healthy grapes with good polyphenolic potential. ->
