Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Wine EnthusiastA blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, this structured wine opens with aromas of plum, dark-skinned berry and a whiff of clove. The smooth, savory palate doles out black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, polished tannins.
Wine SpectatorFlavors of the cherry, tobacco and spice are balanced by the structure in this elegant, athletic red, which is tense and long, ending with a spice-infused aftertaste. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2024.
