  • Jäklar vad bra detta vin är. så kompakt och härligt med en början till fina mognadstoner. Ett av Toscanas bästa viner tycker jag.

  • Great but to young. Needs minimum 4 years more in the bottle.

  • A great example of a fine Cabernet Franc.
    Such a lovely nose, with dusty herbs, gravel, pencil shavings and some grass and dry Tuscan earth.
    Palate is excellent, with a very fine balance, beautiful red fruit, medium+ tannins, and a very fine booth balance and structure, with excellent acidity.
    Deep sappy fruit, some herbs, grass, dry berries and red earth.
    A wine that showed many different shapes thru the evening, as it developed with air.
    Started out rather closed, with harsh tannins, but opened up and came along very good with air, and at the very end it really showed its true colors.
    This will benefit from a really long decant, or even better, with further cellar time.
    The 2006 vintage in Northern Italy is really good, but still young.
    A beautiful & elegant wine.
    Le Macchiole has once again proved to me that they are Tuscany and Bolgheries absolute number one producer.

  • At Garibaldi in Singapore. 100% cabernet franc super tuscan; certainly not a common sight. Good concentration on the palate with masses of dark fruit complemented with a touch of oak. Lush and full bodied mouthfeel with mouth coating tannins but still managed to maintain a certain level of silkiness and finesse. Relatively long, smooth finish which persisted for more than 10secs. Components have come together nicely in balance. Can probably hold for another decade or so but you won't have many regrets drinking it today.

  • 100% Cabernet Franc. Har druckit många årgångar av detta vin men ej tidigare denna. Drack flaskan över två kvällar. Vinet var snäppet bättre dag 2 och anteckningarna är skrivna utifrån dag 2.
    Mogen mörk frukt, espresso, choklad och örter. Väldigt fruktdrivet vin med värme och hetta men med en elegant syra och silkiga tanniner som väger upp det fint.
    Tycker att La Macchiole är en strålande producent. Både Scrio (100% Syrah), Messorio (100% Merlot) och deras enklare Bolgheri Rosso (blandvin) är riktigt bra viner. Upplever dock denna årgång lite varmare och hetare än deras vanligtvis elegantare stil.
