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.'

2016 BOLGHERI ROSSO Le Macchiole

2016 BOLGHERI ROSSO Le Macchiole

75cl bottles, case of 6

As ever the blend is Merlot, Cabernet and some Syrah. This is again an unbelievably smart wine from the team here. Intense, complex and individual - but with such satisfying feel and depth it is hard As ever the blend is Merlot, Cabernet and some Syrah. This is again an unbelievably smart wine from the team here. Intense, complex and individual - but with such satisfying feel and depth it is hard to believe you can get so much class in the glass for less than £20 per bottle. The 2016 vintage release is another great example of Le Macchiole's personal interpretation of their Bolgheri terroir. the grapes used to produce this wine come from a very specific selection of their younger vineyards (Vignone 1999, Puntone 1993, Casa Nuova 1998, 2009, 2013) producing a Bolgheri DOC wine based on the traditional Bordeaux blend, typical of the area, but with its own original and distinguishing features. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2017)

The 2014 has lovely mid-palate density, especially for the year, along with a decidedly exotic passion fruit/apricot quality that will only grow as the wine continues to develop in bottle. I expect the 2014 starts to drink well relatively early, but it also has enough freshness and balance to hold for a number of years. Hints of truffle, raspberry jam, blood orange and spice infuse the layered, creamy finish. Drinking range: 2019 - 2029 Rating: 93 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Apr 2018)
