Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Pure and expressive, this red features cherry, raspberry and blackberry flavors augmented by iron, spice and light herb accents. Sleek and elegant, with a succulent profile and excellent persistence on the finish. Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2042." - BS (web only 2023)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"On the nose, sweet, slightly tart aromas of cherries and blackberries are balanced by a stony, spicy earthiness. That interplay between tart fruit and sanguine earthiness continues on the palate, creating the sensation of a breath of fresh spring air after the rain, before chalky tannins and bright acid usher in a bitter, peppery finish."

93+ Points - Wine Advocate:
"The Le Macchiole 2021 Bolgheri Rosso is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The wine kicks it up from the start with bold but also very fresh fruit tones of dark cherry and blackberry. The quality of the primary fruit is spot-on, especially in this balanced vintage, and you get fun, punchy flavors to pair with grilled meats and a side a French Fries. The wine has enough structure, acidity and elegant tannins to stand up to the fat in those foods." - Monica Larner (May 2023)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Attractive aromas of dark berries with crushed walnuts, spicy herbs and dusty earth undertones. Medium- to full-bodied with a firm grip of tannins, that are fine and polished. Juicy acidity cuts through the linear finish. Fresh with stony minerality coming through in the finish. Better in a year or two." (Jun 2023)

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2021 Bolgheri Rosso gorgeous wine shows how compelling this vintage is on the Tuscan coast. Effusive and deep, the 2021 is beautifully layered from start to finish. Gentle touches of mocha, new leather, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers add complexity throughout." - Antonio Galloni (Aug 2023)
