Description

Merlot 50%, Cabernet Franc 20%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Syrah 10%. Usually from two new younger vineyards planted in 2012 and 2015 (‘Casa Nuova’ and ‘I Sommi’). One is a rocky hillside vineyard and the other is quite sandy. This is supplemented by fruit that does not make the grade for the Paleo, Scrio and Messorio (‘Puntone’ planted in 1994, ‘Vignone’ in 1999, ‘Casa Nuova’ planted in 1998-2009). Fermentation is done in stainless steel – 15 days. Press and decant for 1 month. Then 80% goes into old barriques and 20% is held in concrete for about 10 months and then the wine is blended.
“The Le Macchiole 2021 Bolgheri Rosso is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The wine kicks it up from the start with bold but also very fresh fruit tones of dark cherry and blackberry. The quality of the primary fruit is spot-on, especially in this balanced vintage, and you get fun, punchy flavors to pair with grilled meats and a side a French Fries. The wine has enough structure, acidity and elegant tannins to stand up to the fat in those foods. Drink 2023-2030.” 93+ points Monica Larner, robertparker.com June 2023

 

‘Cinzia Merli’s 2021 Bolgheri Rosso combines four varieties (merlot, syrah and cabernets franc and sauvignon) in a lush, layered and seamless wine. Opulent dark plum and blackberry flavors are balanced by lively acidity and lifted by scents of thyme and lavender. The refined tannins frame the flavors and guide the wine to a long, satisfying finish. This is a serious blend that you can happily drink now and over the next five years.’ 94points S.J  wineandspritsmagazine.com Dec 2023
