2007 Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso
"Paleo (a pure expression of Cabernet Franc from Coastal Tuscany) is a drop dead gorgeous wine with amazing intensity and purity of aromas. You get it all here: Bright berry notes, drying mineral, exotic spice, cooling acidity and firm, satisfying structure. Itâs a rich, velvety and beautiful wine that will award you a memorable drinking experience now or in 10 years time." 98 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The 2007 Paleo Rosso (Cabernet Franc) offers up compelling, nuanced layers of smoke, dark cherries, mocha and grilled herbs in a style that reveals considerable richness and opulence but also quite a bit of verve, minerality and sheer structure. The wine has begun to shut down considerably since it was bottled and will require quite a bit of patience. Still, it is impossible to miss the silkiness of the tannins, the impeccable purity of the finish and the wineâs exceptional overall sense of harmony. This brilliant effort will be a joy to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027." 95 Points - Antonio Galloni - The Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby. Precise aromas of strawberry, raspberry, graphite and iron filings, with a suave undercurrent of white pepper. A strong violet note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, nicely lifting the red berry and mineral flavors. Finishes impressively pure, focused and creamy-smooth, with a lingering floral note." 94 points - Ian D'Agata - International Wine Cellar
"100% Cabernet Franc. Very ripe nose. Mildly aromatic but with lots of sweetness, even a hint of oak still. But very well made and balanced. Mild and more fragrant and polished than a Cabernet Sauvignon would be. A little bit of alcohol on the end. Pretty marked tannins at the moment. A slight green note at the end. Drink 2013 to 2020. (JR)" 17 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"Named for the vineyard of its provenance, Paleo Rosso is the flagship wine for Le Macchiole and was the first wine in Bolgheri to made entirely from Cabernet Franc. Ruby red with violet flecks, its red fruit aroma offers notes of yellow and black pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg. Clean on the palate, it finishes with elegant minerality, ripe fruit, and a hint of balsamic." -Importer
"Long before it was fashionable, Eugenio Campolmi saw the potential of his homeland, buying his first vineyard in Bolgheri in 1975 baptised 'Le Macchiole.' In 1987, he hired famed oenologist Vittorio Fiore as a consultant before the latter was joined by Luca d'Attoma four years later. In contrast to his renowned neighbors who focused on Bordeaux blends, Campolmi focused on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Soon Le Macchiole joined Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri. Following Eugenio's death in 2002, his wife Cinzia Merli, who shares her husband's passion, took over at the estate. Working with Luca D'Attoma, she has carried on her husband's legacy by continuing to make great Tuscan wines." -Importer
2004 Ercole Velenosi Ludi
"The 2004 Rosso Ludi is a deep powerful wine bursting with cherries, grilled wild herbs, tobacco and French oak. Still rather taut, the wineâs layered personality only emerges with some time in the glass, but there is enough freshness here to suggest that the wine will continue to drink well for at least another few years. Sweet notes of mint and licorice linger on the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014." 90 points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot. Intense ruby red color, with seductive aroma hints of spicy and ripe, fleshy fruits. Austere, silky mouthfeel, hallmarked by dense yet soft, subtle tannins." -Importer
"The vineyards are mainly clay, tending to limestone from 200-300 meters above sea level. Harvest occurs in mid-October. Fermentation is done in 200 HL temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is aged for 2 years in new wooden barrels of various dimensions." -Importer
"Located just outside of the town of Ascoli Piceno, Velenosi is a dynamic estate headed by the charismatic and skilled Angela Velenosi. The estate is included in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production subzone, a privileged area included in the much larger zone of Rosso Piceno. While Rosso Piceno is produced in a rather vast hilly area of the Marche, only the very limited zone within the province of Ascoli Piceno, with its special microclimate and pedologic conditions that extend over fourteen municipalities of this province, is designated Superiore. In addition to Rosso Piceno Superiore, which is generally cited smong the top wines in the Marche, Velenosi also produces a Bordeauz-style IGT Marche called Ludi that is widely considered one of the top Italian wines. The potential of this terroir combined with the work of Attilio Pagli at the helm of the winemaking has lead Velenosi to be recognized as a leading producer in Italy and around the world." -Importer
