2008 Le Macchiole Scrio Toscana IGT

Syrah more

5/21/2015 - Ramberg wrote: 93 points

A fine nose indeed, that was somewhat shy to begin with, but came along in the glass with air.
First a touch of cheese (?) that fortunately blew off, opening up and showing density of red fruit, red berries, Tuscan earth and dust, with some expensive cedar wood.
No real Syrah characteristics at this point thought.
Palate is equally dense and almost shy, still young, but showing great promise.
Fat and fine fruit, Tuscan red berries, earthy, herbs and licorice with a touch of iron and blood.
Very good length and balance, with a good body and structure, good tannins and superb acidity and backbone.
This still needs time to come around, but in 5 years it will show great, of that I am certain.
Le Macchiole’s Scrio is the best Syrah wine made outside of Northern Rhône, and always a treat to drink.
(93 – 96)

Wow!
What an amazing nose.
This is indeed a world class wine from Bolgheri’s finest, and just keeps getting better and better from vintage to vintage, as the vines are getting older.
Nose shows lovely Cabernet Franc characteristics, with green grass, herbs, Tuscan earth, touch of smoke, red berry perfume, flowers, dust and stony minerals.
Palate with dry and dusty both fruit and minerals, red berries, dense fruit, fine wood and a superb acidity.
Superb length and structure, with drying tannins that has started to resolve.
This is such a treat, and the window is open for enjoying this wine now, but I can easily imagine how good this will be 5 years from now.
Has the stuffing to go all the way, and will be even better once it reaches peak.
Still, lovely and my wine of the Le Macchiole flight tonight.
I love the Paleo Rosso.
(93 – 96+)

A bit shy on the nose to begin with, and not 100% correct, as I detected some traces of cork/TCA.
Red berries and red perfume, beyond the faint cork.
Palate shows high acidity, fat and dense fruit with a touch of alcohol, and wet hay.
This is normally a very fine wine.
Will not give any rating, due to the cork, but instead call this bottle flaw.

A bit restrained, but shows a dusty and gravely nose, red berries, fine and expensive wood, cedar, touch of fine tobacco leafs, pencil shavings, spicy herbs with cough medicine.
Very fine.
Palate is on the very young side of things, with vanilla and cedar wood, dense & fat fruit, very good structure & fat fruit, with medium tannins present.
Some alcohol heat present, but nothing alarmingly in anyway.
A very infantile wine at this point, but also very promising indeed, with all stuffing present and ready to burst out.
Not just there yet.
Just a few years away from being a very silky and ready to really gulp down in big Bordeaux glasses.
Can’t wait!
A beautiful 100% Merlot from Bolgheri’s finest.

Doft av kolasöta mörka bär, ger inte ifrån sig så mycket alls.
Smaken är lite klumpig, troligen för det står brevid sina 3 storasyskon som alla 3 upplevs som mer snygga. Mycket bra vin dock och gott och prisvärt.

Doften dominteras av röda bär, lim, nypon.
Smak ceder, fin frukt, nåt litet medisinskt,
Hade väldigt svårt att placera detta vin i mer än Italien och trodde att det var en Barbera blint. Imponerar inte som jag tycker det borde.

Ett jättebra toscanavin som tyvärr har svårt att stå upp mot kvällens andra viner, det var mest med för att jag trodde att de flesta jag var ute med inte skulle uppskatta bra barolo eller bra bourgogne och jag hade så rätt. Detta vin tilltalade flest personer runt bordet! kvällens vin om vi skulle ha röstat kanske.

Koyu bordo renkli. Burunda fıçıdan gelen kokuların yanısıra, kırmızı meyve kokuları. Damakta fıçı yine hissediliyor, ancak yüksek meyve konsantrasyonu, belirgin asiditesi, baharatı ve bitternessi ile çok keyifli elegan bir şarap. Katmanlı bir yapısı var. Bitiş orta üst. Bu şarabın 1999 rekoltesini 14 yıllık iken içmiştim. Kazandığı bukeler ile biraz daha ilerideydi 2008'e göre. 2008 şu anda içilebileceği gibi, en az 10 yıl daha bekletilebilir.

Ci vogliono almeno 2 ore in un decanter per goderne appieno. Alcool sotto controllo, profumato e un piacere al palato. Manca forse un po' di eleganza. Meriterebbe un 92 ma il prezzo lo penalizza.

Wines With A View (Capitol Grille Tasting Event) (The Spire): This was one of my favorites of the tasting. Totally open and accessible, seems to be maturing early and opening up beautifully. Cedar and smoke scents swirl in the glass, with violets and damp earth as well. Very complex, dynamic and energetic structure. Lots of Italian style earth and leather. Powerful tannins. Nothing like a French or Napa Cabernet Franc. This would be hard to criticize.

Has the graphite dark fruit thing of Bolgheri Rosso. Really opened up about two hours in but doesn't feel like its evolving all that much anymore. Maybe its time to drink up? Or at least time to test another bottle!

PNP and drank, uncorked, over three hours. Cork bled 50%. My sense is that a half hour air is enough.
Smooth and elegant. Blackberry, black cherry, green pepper. Not enough complexity to justify the tariff.
Watch the shmutz.

100%-Merlot themed dinner (The American Club): Last wine in our line-up for the evening/night, & also the most favoured one (by concensus) in that most (incl. myself) had this as our #1-WOTN... Like the prior Masseto, very lovely aromatics - cedar, spice, tobacco. It showed very nicely on the palate too, with more notes of tobacco, coffee, dark-fruits. Silky and long. Between the Masseto and this, I felt this came across "classier" while the Masseto was slightly more "rigid". Nonetheless, both were great and should even be greater given time!

100%-Merlot themed dinner (The American Club): Beside the Galatrona, this felt bigger (more stuffing) but at the same time, somewhat clumsier. Some spice, plums and dark-berries on the nose. On the palate, lush with more notes of plums, blackberries and also a hint of heat/alcohol at the backend. This should get better given more time in bottle...
