Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The 2009 Paleo Rosso (Cabernet Franc) resonates on the palate with notable warmth and richness. Espresso, mocha, dark cherries and plums come to life in this gorgeous, sexy red. The 2009 possesses marvelous length and intensity all the way through to the silky, medium-bodied finish. Today the 2009 impresses for its overt fruit, but varietal notes are much more elusive as the wine is very, very tight. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. ||I tasted Le Macchiole’s 2009s several times, all with the same results. The 2009 vintage was a difficult one in Maremma because of the hot summer. All of Le Macchiole’s top wines are single-varietal bottlings, which means there is not much that can be done in the cellar to adjust blends, something so many other wineries are able to do in challenging vintages. Overall, the 2009s don’t reach the heights that are customary at Le Macchiole. Wine Advocate.June, 2012

Tuscan estate Le Macchiole is renowned for making some of Italy’s most inspiring wines. Passionate about creating true expressions of the vineyards, this cutting edge estate uses low yields to produce stunning fruit that requires minimal cellar intervention. Antonio Galloni believes that this estate’s “potential is limitless”.
