Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2008

Tasted 2/4/2011, 14% ABV. £16.95 Lea and Sandeman. Lovely 'minor Supertuscan' from a well regarded producer of the 'new Tuscany'. Merlot-Cabernet Franc-Sangiovese-Syrah blend makes for an interesting 'winemakers lot' product. Oaky blacks fruits on the nose; dry, ripe cherries and plums on the palate, good sense of terroir. Very distinctive, good vintage, needs longer, from 2012. 17/20
