The 2015 Bolgheri Rosso is mostly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. The Merlot is harvested on the early side in order to preserve acidity, meanwhile the other varieties are harvested a bit later to add softness and roundness. In order to highlight the crispness of the fruit, one-fourth of the mass is aged in cement and the rest goes into various types of neutral barrel. This terrific wine boasts firm lines and a soft, cherry-driven core. The finish offers a quirky collection of exotic spice aromas that are mild and subtle. Some 130,000 bottles were produced.

Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso comes from the younger Le Macchiole vineyards. Harvesting, winemaking and ageing are aimed at producing a Bolgheri DOC wine based on the traditional Bordeaux blend, typical of the area, but with its own original and distinguishing features. A fresh and complex wine, yet easily enjoyable, which pairs well with a variety of dishes. Bolgheri Rosso is Le Macchiole wine that delivers a wonderful interpretation of the Bolgheri terroir.
