​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.

The 2008 Scrio (Syrah) wraps around the palate with layers of rich, dark fruit. This is a decidedly cool Scrio that stands apart from some of the more bombastic wines of recent vintages. Dark cherries, plums, espresso and sweet herbs are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge over time, but it is the integration of the French oak this year that truly elevates the wine to another level. Not surprisingly, in 2008 Scrio was aged exclusively in 1 year-old barrels, with no new oak, which makes a huge difference. This is understated and flat-out great... - The Wine Advocate (2008 vintage)The Wine Advocate: 96/100 (2008 vintage)
