The 2005 Paleo Rosso needed time in bottle to allow the Cabernet Franc signatures to emerge, but they are now all there front and center. The freshest and brightest of Le Macchiole's 2005s, the Paleo Rosso is plump, juicy and expressive, although it naturally does not offer the finesse or nuance of the very best years. A host of mocha, espresso, torrefaction, tobacco, mint, leather and licorice meld into the expressive finish. This is a fabulous showing from the 2005. Drink:2015 - 2025
