Availability: In Stock
Excluding GST: S$253.00
Initially put onto the wine map by Eugenio Campolmi in 1983, the Le Macchiole estate has been run by his wife Cinzia since 2002. With 22 hectares of vineyard over much of the best soils of the region these are, along with the Sassicaia and Ornellaia's vineyards, also among the oldest and most established vines in Bolgheri. Their careful selection of grape varieties and cultivation techniques according to climate and soil has led them to concentrate on Merlot, Syrah and most importantly Cabernet Franc, a variety which can express itself so well in the hands of Le Macchiole. All of their wines are marked by a unique and unmistakable character. Full bodied wines, and yet with clean and elegant flavours, leading to great freshness and finesse, they are incredibly sought after world-wide.
Offers enticing aromas of black currant, cherry, cedar, coffee, tobacco and herbs. Very Bordeaux-like, complex and classy, this is firmly tannic and just a little compact despite the long finish. Decant or cellar for a few years. Cabernet Franc... - The Wine Spectator (2011 vintage)
