Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso
International Wine CellarModerately saturated ruby. Cassis, plum and milk chocolate on the nose, lifted by a floral perfume. Sweet, dense and youthfully unevolved, with classic cabernet flavors of dark berries, graphite, and a touch of cedar. Broadens out impressively on the back end and shows increasing sweetness of fruit with extended aeration. This is a very supple version of Paleo; with less of the acid backbone of other recent vintages, it boasts a softer, if simpler, appeal.
