Arresting in its beauty, the 2014 is translucent, pretty and highly nuanced. The cold, late-maturing vintage did not allow for a super-concentrated style, so the winery followed the natural rhythm of the vintage, and to great effect. In other words, the estate got every ounce of potential out of the year. In 2014, Paleo Rosso is a touch slender, but it is also vivid and exquisitely beautiful. Readers should expect a perfumed Paleo Rosso built on grace rather than power. The 100% new French oak is impeccably balanced. In other words, Le Macchiole crushed it. -- Antonio Galloni

Rich yet focused, with flavors of black currant, olive, tobacco and iron. Features a dense grain, yet all the components work together, with balance and light tannins on the fresh, coffee-tinged finish.

With a few stern swirls of the glass, the wine begins to show increased substance and grit with black fruit, cured leather and spice aromas. The wine oozes darkness overall. It appears opulent and bold in terms of aromas, yet the mouthfeel is more streamlined and compact instead. In terms of the palate, this edition of Paleo definitely needs to flesh out further with additional cellar aging. - Monica Larner

Pretty berry and currant character with hints of sandalwood and rose. Medium body, tight and chewy tannins and a fresh and polished finish. Drink or hold.
