Le Macchiole Scrio 2019 (95 W&S)

“Scrio bears more resemblance to a Northern Rhône syrah than in any previous vintage I’ve tasted, unfolding with violet-scented flavors of fresh red plum and red currant tinged with notes of black pepper and a hint of smoked bacon. It’s in the structure and texture that you feel the fleshy warmth of the Tuscan coast, the velvety tannins rounding out those tangy red fruit tones.” — S.J. 4/23

    Scrio was first produced in 1994. Le Macchiole founder Eugenio Campolmi created it because he wanted to produce a wine that would best express his vision of Syrah, his favorite grape variety. Scrio has an original personality and stands apart from Syrah grown in France or anywhere else - it is an extraordinarily compelling meld of deep and velvety Mediterranean fruit with cool climate aromatics and detail. Given the extremely limited production, Scrio is decidedly a hidden gem.

    Le Macchiole can best be defined as the “Boutique Bolgheri.” The winery is known for its spectacular single-varietal wines, and their signature grape varieties are Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc and work is always conducted with the priority being "the expression of the land." The winery continues to evolve in both the vineyards and in the cellar to allow the soil characteristics from this estate property to be the defining identity in the wines.
