Availability: In Stock
Excluding GST: S$82.00
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.
The 2009 Paleo Bianco (Sauvignon, Chardonnay) shows off the richer side of these international varieties. The Sauvignon, which typically gives this wine its aromatics, is curiously muted in this vintage, while the overall impression is one of heaviness.... - The Wine Advocate (2009 vintage)
