This rich opulent red caresses the palate seamlessly with masses of dark fruit in a large-scaled expression of Syrah. Spices mint and flowers develop in the glass adding further shades of nuance. The plushness of the fruit builds towards a rich immensely rewarding finish. Scrio is fermented in open-top French oak barriques and the oak is noticeable at this stage so the wine is best left alone in the cellar for a few years. This is magnificent juice! Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.Le Macchiole crafted some of the most successful wines in Bolgheri in 2007. Proprietor Cinzia Merli and long-time consulting oenologist Luca D'Attoma continue to make important strides as the estate seems to be heading for a less obvious decidedly elegant style than has sometimes been the case in the past. A conversion to biodynamic farming in some of the estate's vineyards and a more enlightened use of French oak are among the recent developments at Le Macchiole. Antonio Galloni
