Scrio is a top-notch Syrah from Coastal Tuscany that does an excellent job of portraying not only the true nuances of the noble grape variety, but also the bounty of the beautiful territory that shaped it.

Scrio is a top-notch Syrah from Coastal Tuscany that does an excellent job of portraying not only the true nuances of the noble grape variety, but also the bounty of the beautiful territory that shaped it. Let this wine transport you to cypress-lined roads, stone farmhouses and Tuscan cuisine. The pleasure factor and richness are unbeatable.

The estate's 2007 Scrio (Syrah) is simply breathtaking. 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... The estate's 2007 Scrio (Syrah) is simply breathtaking. 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

Round and juicy, with spice, chocolate, meat and berry character. Full and velvety-textured, with sweet, ripe fruit, but balanced. Very classy. Syrah. Best after 2011. 250 cases made.

(100% syrah; 13.5% alcohol) Good full ruby. Highly expressive nose of blackcurrant and plum, complicated by an intense note of smoky bacon. On the palate, lively red and dark fruit flavors display an exotic floral quality... (100% syrah; 13.5% alcohol) Good full ruby. Highly expressive nose of blackcurrant and plum, complicated by an intense note of smoky bacon. On the palate, lively red and dark fruit flavors display an exotic floral quality along with enticing grilled bacon and saline nuances. Finishes creamy-rich and smooth, with excellent clarity and sweet persistence. Refined and complex wine: I'm not sure I have ever had a better young Scrio than this one. - Ian D'Agata

Le Macchiole

Le Macchiole is an estate in Bolgheri, Tuscany on the Etruscan Coast. Founded in 1983 by Eugenio Campolini and Cinzia Merli, the estate has 24 hectares of organically farmed vineyards producing 5 single-variety wines: Paleo Bianco, Bolgheri Rosso, Paleo Rosso, Scrio and Messorio. It was a risky decision to produce single-varietal wines when neighbors such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso were achieving world-renown for their Super Tuscan Bordeaux blends. But with commitment and determination, they achieved the esteem and recognition deserving of the series of their stunning wines.

Sadly, Eugenio passed away and did not live to see the result of his work but his legacy is continued by his wife Cinzia who works devotedly in the vineyards to demonstrate the purity and unique interpretation of Le Macchiole wines.
