Technical Info

Vineyard

Paleo Rosso is sourced from four of the estate's five vineyards: Puntone, Casa Nuova, Vignone and Madonnina.

Vinification

Paleo Rosso is aged for 20 days in concrete vats and also sees 14 months in oak barrels with 75% new and 25% second passage. It was bottled in April of 2013, and aged for 17 months in bottle before release.

Vintage

The 2011 vintage represents an ideal vintage for cabernet franc, expressing the best characteristics of this variety which is the symbol of Le Macchiole. The vines had grapes ripening practically perfectly with very thick skins yet crisp pips; these quality parameters allowed for a long skin maceration and slow extraction. The Paleo Rosso denotes the unique characteristics of this variety with voluminous, structured tannins, an intense flavor profile, classic cabernet franc aroma - all very persuasive.
