Le Macchiole

Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso 2010 750ml


About Le Macchiole

Founded in 1983 on a nine-acre plot, Le Macchiole is Bolgheri’s best-known boutique producer. Hometown hero Eugenio Campolmi and wife Cinzia Merli... launched Le Macchiole with a big dream and almost no money, starting their estate by planting a handful of grape varietals with scattershot abandon, experimenting to see which grapes flourished in the estate’s mineral-rich soils, and crafting mono-varietal expressions from their vines. Sadly, Eugenio passed away unexpectedly in 2002, but Cinzia continued in his footsteps. Cinzia hired her brother, Massimo Merli, as estate manager, methodically added acreage, carefully fine-tuned the viticultural protocol, and steadily raised the bar with every vintage. Today, Le Macchiole’s 54 acres are farmed biodynamically, and the estate produces a range of six wines: three mono-varietal reds, as well as two blends, one white and one red. Cinzia still helms the estate, now aided by her sons, Elia and Mattia, who are ensuring the future of Le Macchiole’s terroir-driven, elegant, and showstopping wines.

Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2019 750ml


About Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello was an intractable defender of traditional Barolo, the “last of the Mohicans,” in his words. Bartolo made Barolos that... gorgeously embodied their vintage and their terroir, and these supple, powerful, and nuanced wines have captivated their fans for generations. Since Bartolo’s passing in 2005, his daughter Maria Teresa Mascarello has helmed the cantina at 15 Via Roma, the legendary site of the Bartolo Mascarello estate since its founding in 1918, and under her leadership, Mascarello’s Barolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera have grown even finer, subtler, more detailed, and spellbinding. While the Mascarello estate sports enviable holdings in Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Rué, located in the commune of Barolo, as well as in La Morra’s Rocche in the commune of La Morra, it still has never released a cru wine. Blending, Bartolo believed, provided balance, especially in challenging vintages. Maria Teresa sees no reason to change her father’s ways (or those of his father, and his before him). After all, there’s no improving upon perfection.
