Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso 2005, 750mL (WA93, WS93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Le Macchiole Paleo Rosso

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: Italy
Appellation: Bolgheri

WA93, WS93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Paleo (Cabernet Franc) is impressive. Wild herbs, roasted coffee beans, new leather, minerals and dark fruit emerge from this long, refined wine. Although the intensity tapers off slightly on the mid-palate, this is an absolutely gorgeous wine loaded with style and personality. Still tightly wound, it needs further bottle age to reach its peak. It is arguably the most successful of the estate-s 2005s. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.`Le Macchiole releases its wines later than most estates on the Tuscan coast, so readers will find the 2004s in the market, while the 2005s are due to arrive this Fall. Proprietor Cinzia Merli and long-time oenologist Luca D-Attoma have turned out a glorious set of 2004s. The 2005 vintage proved to be much more challenging as the damp, fresh growing season made it hard to achieve full ripeness. These are pretty wines, but they aren-t quite at the level of the estate-s finest efforts.`
