Le Macchiole Paleo Bolgheri Cabernet Franc 2013

$89

Paleo Rosso arrived in 1989. It is the wine that has evolved well over time: born originally as a classic Bordeaux blend in 2001, eventually arriving as a 100% Cabernet Franc. This is a beautiful story of obstinacy in challenging the stereotype of Cabernet Franc, which is already difficult to produce, and even more so as a pure varietal wine. Today Paleo Rosso is a symbol of Bolgheri despite its distinct individualism and originality within the region; it is one of the most famous Italian Cabernet Franc wines in the world. The word Paleo is a common name referring to the 'Festuca Pratensis' of the family Gramineae, an herb spontaneously growing on the Tuscan coast.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Not much of bouquet on the nose. Earthy & smooth. 1 hr decant. May revisit in few yrs.

This is consistently matter the year that I’ve had, the best single vocab frog that I found. The 2013 Paleo was no exception. Silky smooth with some underlying earthtones and some dark fruit. Tannic features of this wine still present, and should cellar for another decade or more.
