What the Critics say
The 2018 Scrio is a pure expression of Syrah and one of the wines that broke the mold on this grape grown in coastal Tuscany (I would put the Syrahs from Tua Rita and Duemani in the same category). This is such a delicious wine and you want to bite into it, sip after sip, as if it were food. There is sweetness here, ample spice, tons of dark fruit and a long, luscious finish. I came back to the open bottle a day later and discovered Christmas spice and savory leather. This Tuscan Syrah shies away from the more prominent white pepper or smoked bacon aromas that you sometimes get from this grape, especially in New World expressions. I'm all about Le Macchiole's Syrah. Drink: 2023-2045.
Le Macchiole is a story of men and human endeavour – and of one man in particular. With dogged perseverance, Eugenio learned to appreciate and ‘feel’ the land, respecting and interpreting it with great talent and sensitivity. Thanks to his serious effort and determination, Le Macchiole became a point of reference for Bolgheri, which is one of the most celebrated oenological areas in Italy today.
