Vini Toscani


The wines of Bolgheri are generally based on a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, often accompanied by Syrah, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese sometimes.

In the last years the number of single variety cru, made with the three main grapes, is increasing.

We are always dealing with intense red wines with a dark ruby, often impenetrable, color and with a very important aging ability.

The aromas are characterized by black berry fruit, ripe and sweet, with balsamic notes of Mediterranean brush, typical of the Bolgheri terroir.

On the palate there is a striking suppleness and softness; the sweetness of the fruit, perceptible on the mid-palate, is always freshened and by a tonic acidity and by a ripe, dense tannic texture, with an excellent length. Even when the structure is a powerful one, the wines, for this reason, are always balanced and harmonious.

Just below the level of Bolgheri Sassicaia, Bolgheri Superiore, and the great IGT wines we find Bolgheri Rosso. These are wines which give exceptional drinking pleasure – wines which are soft, elegant, and ripe in character, less demanding and ambitious compared to the "Superiore" category, but always capable of accompanying, with much pleasure, flavourful dishes of red meat and game.

It is important to note that a good part of the Bolgheri vineyards are still relatively young. This means that the quality level of the current production can only continue to improve over time with a greater vine age.

SCRIO 2016 IGT Toscana Le Macchiole

Price €150.00
Availability: 2 In Stock

This deep, spicy red was first produced in 1994, and the inspiration for its creation was the desire to produce a 100% Syrah, one of Le Macchiole’s favorite grapes.

Rare and original and produced in very small quantities, Scrio quickly became a benchmark in Bolgheri.

The name of the wine, inspired by a Tuscan expression that means “pure, candid, whole,” perfectly describes its defining characteristics.
