Other Reviews....
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.

The 2021 Bolgheri Rosso gorgeous wine shows how compelling this vintage is on the Tuscan coast. Effusive and deep, the 2021 is beautifully layered from start to finish. Gentle touches of mocha, new leather, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers add complexity throughout. Drink 2023-2029.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Attractive aromas of dark berries with crushed walnuts, spicy herbs and dusty earth undertones. Medium- to full-bodied with a firm grip of tannins, that are fine and polished. Juicy acidity cuts through the linear finish. Fresh with stony minerality coming through in the finish. Better in a year or two.

A youthful ruby/purple hue, the 2021 Le Macchiole is showing off, with fabulous aromas that can only be found in Tuscany. Opening in the glass, it is layered with aromas of cherry liqueur, fresh sage, crushed pine needles, and violets. The palate has great tension, with a focused and balanced feel. Ripe, coiled tannins, refreshing acidity, and a long finish make this one outstanding Rosso that will undoubtedly improve in the rare instances where people have the luxury of aging this wine. It’s a steal and should not be overlooked for its aging potential – stash a case away and check in on it over the next 15 years. Drink 2025-2038.

Pure and expressive, this red features cherry, raspberry and blackberry flavors augmented by iron, spice and light herb accents. Sleek and elegant, with a succulent profile and excellent persistence on the finish. Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2042.
