2014 Le Macchiole Pre-shipment Offer

Vintage Report

In the very challenging conditions of the 2014 vintage, it takes a team with the experience and skill of Le Macchiole to produce great wines. Against the odds, they have once again crafted a set of world-beaters that have wowed the critics and earnt Paleo 2014 the much-prized 'Tre Bicchieri' award.

Very sadly, there is no Scrio release in 2014 but, if anything, it just goes to emphasise the exacting standards held by this auspicious estate. The wines Cinzia and the team at Le Macchiole have created are wonderfully pure, nuanced and detailed. They will give great pleasure in the years to come.

We are also delighted to include the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso in the offer once again. It’s very hard to find a wine with this much class for under £20 a bottle so this is an absolute steal at these pre-shipment prices. Don’t miss the chance to add some to your cellar…

Reviews & Awards

'This batch of new releases from Cinzia Merli and her team at Le Macchiole represents interesting philosophical and stylistic shifts. Over the past decades, the vineyard team has amassed enough experience to securely obtain optimal fruit ripeness throughout the various parcels even in difficult vintages.

It’s a question of knowing your land, and years of farming have awarded that awareness.'

This generous feel extends to the palate - where all four varieties are in total harmony. The overall feel is of softness and plumpness but there is a delicious line of acidity adding pep and drive. And in the mouth a lithe feel of polished tannin builds and keeps the flow serious, Well judged red fruit melds seamlessly with some darker flesh - some pepper spiciness and a note of dried tobacco. Richly textured and intensely flavoured this has superb impact and delivers instant joy. What a wine! This polished effort shows the class of Le Macchiole and is something to enjoy as soon as it lands, or hold for 2-3 years, supreme value from the team here.

The core is intense and loaded with firmish black fruit-flesh and a savoury sinew. Dark and brooding for now with seasoning twists of pepper and some lovely leafy, crunchy notes. Serious stuff and with great presence. Well framed by impressive fine-grained tannins that point to a good, mid-to-long term future for this well-proportioned, pure Merlot.L&S(Mar 2019)

The nose sings Cabernet Franc and the depth is hugely impressive. Sweet morello cherry juice and fragrant plum pulp make up a rich sleek core of fruit with ginger spice and fresh green herbs adding another dimension. The grip is beautifully managed, softly granular tannins give length and add a complexity. There is lift too so you are left with a feel of finesse and powerful drive. Clever stuff in a warm year, a dynamic and powerful Paleo.L&S(Mar 2019)
