Bolgheri Doc, 2016, Le Macchiole
Among the first companies that believed in the territory of Bolgheri, in the potential of mono-varietal wines, and in organic vineyards. At the heart of this company is still the land and the vine, treated with enormous respect.
Le Macchiole is today an international brand, led by Cinzia Merli, who founded the company with her husband Eugenio Campolmi, who died prematurely. In 1987 the first bottles are produced; the 24 hectares of property are arranged in a semicircle, as if to emulate an amphitheater, and are conducted in an impeccable and meticulous manner.
Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso is the youngest of their wines, born in 2004. A well-defined project from the start: the grapes used to produce this wine come from very specific and young vineyards. Harvesting, winemaking and ageing are aimed at producing a Bolgheri DOC wine based on the traditional Bordeaux blend, typical of our area, but with its own original and distinguishing features. A fresh and complex wine, yet easily enjoyable, which pairs well with a variety of dishes.
