Description

Le Macchiole Paleo Bianco is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay that’s fermented and aged in barriques, this opens with wood-driven aromas of toast, oak and butterscotch. Oak also takes centre stage on the palate, with apricot and lemon zest in the background.

Initially put onto the wine map by Eugenio Campolmi in 1983, the Le Macchiole estate has been run by his wife Cinzia since 2002. In the heart of Bolgheri, with 22 hectares of vineyard over much of the best soils of the region these are, along with the Tenuta San Guido and Ornellaia’s vineyards, also among the oldest and most established vines in Bolgheri. Their careful selection of grape varieties and cultivation techniques according to climate and soil has led them to concentrate on Merlot, Syrah and most importantly Cabernet Franc, a variety which can express itself so well in the hands of Le Macchiole.
