Le Macchiole Scrio 2015
Este tinto es uno de los pocos vinos elaborados íntegramente con uvas de Syrah en Bolgheri. Original y de producción muy limitada, ofrece un precisa expresión varietal que le ha convertido en toda una referencia en esta zona de la Toscana. Su nombre, inspirado en una expresión popular, significa “puro, sincero, entero”, adjetivos que describen fielmente sus principales señas de identidad. Presenta una enorme capacidad de guarda.

Opinión de los críticos
A stunning syrah; the real McCoy for the variety. The depth of aroma takes your breath away with bark, tea leaves, peppermint, dried rosemary, thyme, sage, pressed violets, cedar, creme de cassis, blackcurrants and lavender. The palate is incredibly tight and yet, profound in its delivery of flavors. Full body, layer upon layer of fruit of every color on the spectrum, pinpoint acidity and a finish that seems endless. Drink in 2025 and way beyond.
It's worth noting that the Scrio was not made in 2014, as Syrah did not reach the right maturity for the quality Le Macchiole looks for. The 2015 growing season wasn't much easier, with 15 days of extreme heat in July. August brought cooler weather, and so they tried to slow down the ripening process by doing very little green harvest. This vintage is marked by more pepper than fruit, but it's still a beautiful effort, and I see a lot of potential for aging this wine. The 2015 Scrio is made with a more reductive approach overall, and this vintage needs a year or two to open fully. Only 3,000 bottles were made.
