Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso 2019, Tuscany, Italy

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 31-Mar-2022
Full, deep ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is moderately full, with aromas of red berries, plums and cassis melded with spice and vanilla. Full-bodied, ripe fruit of red berries, plums and cassis interweave vanilla, spice and an earthy tone. The wine is integrated harmoniously, shows breadth and depth, power and a fine-grained tannin grip. Acidity drives a focus and balance to a lengthy, rich finish. This is an elegantly structured red blend, with rich and succulent fruit, power and velvety tannin extraction. Match with braised short ribs and beef lasagna over the next 6-8 years. A blend of 50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. Fermented in stainless steel to 14.3% alc, maceration for 15 days, aged 10 months in 80% oak barriques (2nd, rd and 4th filled) and 20% in concrete. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2022 RRP $56
