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.

The winter season saw not extremely cold temperatures and well-distributed rainfall. A mild and normal spring. During the flowering stage, it rained non-stop for twenty days. In July, temperatures were quite high during the day, but with an excellent temperature variation during the night. The veraison process set in on the first week of August and ripening proceeded gradually and evenly. The various combinations of different weather conditions led to excellent ripeness of the grapes, allowing us to harvest perfectly on schedule. ->
