2008 - Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso
"Best Paleo ever here. Incredible concentration of fruit, yet racy and balanced. The palate is crazy. It's like chocolate olive oil cake. Beautiful fruit, with dark berries, olive leaf and chocolate. Love the texture. The best pure Cabernet Franc on earth? Can't wait to drink it." (08/11) - 97 Pts James Suckling - JamesSuckling.com
"Good full ruby-red. Knockout, extremely fragrantnose combines raspberry, strawberry, Oriental spices, bay leaf, violet and white pepper. Fine-grained, pure and penetrating on the palate, with outstanding density and great energy to the flavors of red berries, aromatic herbs and white pepper. The extremely long, perfumed,palate-staining finish features supple tannins that are in perfect harmony with the wine's fruit. Another great Paleo in the making: I love this wine's vibrant delivery of pure, unadulterated cabernet franc aromas and flavors. A great showing." (09/12) - 95+ Pts Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
"Paleo is a landmark Italian expression of Cabernet Franc that is not at all bashful in terms of fullness and richness. Bold fruit and black cherry aromas have been soften by careful oak tones of spice and leather. Structured, firm but also velvety in texture, this wine needs more years to evolve. CELLAR SELECTION
" (02/12) - 95 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"Offers black currant, black cherry and cedar aromas and flavors, with hints of sage. Round and juicy, its tannins are integrated, and the finish lingers. A fruit-driven red. Cabernet Franc. Best from 2013 through 2021. 2,158 cases imported. -BS" (05/11) - 90 Pts Wine Spectator
"The wines of Le Macchiole are, for me, one of the major reasons why this district has been so successful." - Lodovico Antinori
"Until the early 1980's, wines produced in Bolgheri were largely focused on quantity over quality. The changes that developed thereafter were largely due to the few producers recognizing the potential of a Bordeaux winemaking model which favored long ageing in small barrels. In 1983, the year when the first specifications for the protection of Bolgheri DOC wines were approved, the late Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli planted the vineyards of Le Macchiole at the foot of the Bolgheri Hills. Six years later, in 1989, the first vintage of Paleo Rosso was produced; Messorio and Scrio produced later in 1994. In 1991, Le Macchiole began working with famed oenologist Luca d'Attoma. The estate focuses on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Le Macchiole joins Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri." -Importer
"Paleo Rosso is the one that I feel closest to and the one that excites me most. He can pleasantly surprise you And is also the one that will unexpectedly give you the greatest feeling and passion. He enters your soul in a way that is persuasive and intriguing, without ever being excessive in his expressions. " - Winery
2007 - Gran Elias Mora Toro
"The 2007 Gran Elias Mora was sourced from 70+-year-old vines and aged for 12 months in new French oak after which selected barrels were aged for an additional 5 months. It is a glass-coating purple/black color with aromas of graphite, Asian spices, lavender, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layerd, already complex, and structured on the palate, it merits 5 years of cellaring and will be at its best from 2015 to 2027." (04/10) - 92+ Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Bright purple. Heady, exotic bouquet of black raspberry, cherry-cola, potpourri and sandalwood. Fleshy, alluringly sweet cherry pie and dark berry flavors gain sweetness with air, picking up musky licorice and rose pastille nuances. For a rich wine this is shockingly fresh. Finishes with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence. Already offers plenty of complexity now but this wine should reward patience." (10/10) - 92 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"The grapes come from the vineyards having belonged to Elias Mora, which he cultivated for 40 years and for whom the wine is named. The vines are a Tempranillo clone that yields small berries and is planted on small slopes with rocky soil."
"Harvested at the end of September. The wine was fermented in small stainless steel tanks for 22 days. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in second-fill American and French oak barrels. Clarification with egg whites was done before bottling. The wine was bottled without filtration or stabilization." -Importer
"This Bodega, situated in the famous village of San Roman de Hornija, was started by the two Victorias; Victoria Benavides and Victoria Pariente. The vision for the project included production of both white wines from Rueda and red wines from Toro. Recently, the Victorias have separated their winemaking facilities, with the Bodega in Toro renamed Bodegas Elias Mora, to better concentrate on production of each type of wine to its highest possible quality."
"The winery owns 8 Ha. (17.6 acres) of vineyards, including the 'Los Pajaros vineyard' and 'La Veleta' as well as a few small plots owned by farmers, also planted in San Roman de la Hornija. The vines are planted at 2,600 feet above sea level. The soil comprises clay and limestone with big stones on the surface."
"The winery is named after Elias Mora, the man who owned some of the core vineyards for the production of the Victoria's red wine. A few years ago, he sold his vineyard to Dos Victorias on the condition that he tend the vineyard until his death."-Importer
