We are in Bolgheri, Tuscany, on the Etruscan Coast. In this magical place, where rolling hills are blanketed by forest, where vineyards and olive trees meet with the Tyrrhenian Sea, Le Macchiole has taken shape over time.
Le Macchiole was founded in 1983 on the desire of Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli to turn their passion for wine into their life dream. It was a revolutionary project rooted in their hometown of Bolgheri, at the time not as famous as now. The idea was simple but decisive: to originate in the vineyard, investing completely in research and experimentation in planting including varieties lesser used in Bolgheri.
1987 marked the initial bottling’s of the Le Macchiole production, though with a selection now no longer in existence. Only in 1989, when Paleo Rosso was born, was there the first interpretation of our Bolgherese style.
