The winery

Le Macchiole was born in 1983 from the desire of Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli to transform their passion for wine into the dream of their life, with a revolutionary project for Bolgheri, at the time not as famous as today. The idea is simple but decisive: starting from the vineyard, investing everything in research and experimentation, also planting varieties then little used in Bolgheri.
In 1987 the first production went into the bottle with a line that no longer exists and, only in 1989, Paleo Rosso was born, our first interpretation of the Bolgherese style.
The 90s will then be decisive for the definition of the company itself: a greater awareness of the available territory, the choice to introduce high density plants and the innovative and risky decision to produce monovarietal wines.
This is how Messorio (100% Merlot) and Scrio (100% Syrah) were born in 1994 and in 2001 Paleo Rosso became 100% Cabernet Franc. Eugenio thus conquers, with commitment and determination, the esteem of the great names of the territory but, in 2002, when he finally begins to reap the fruits of his work, he tragically disappears.
Then Cinzia takes over the reins of the company and with the help of a team of young talents in all corporate roles, she impresses her personality in a few years. Professionalism, talent, passion, attention to detail from the vine to the wine, this is what Cinzia has always tried to try to produce unique and unrepeatable wines.
There are 24 hectares of vineyards planted organically and with the harvested grapes it produces 5 wines: Paleo Bianco, Bolgheri Rosso, Paleo Rosso, Scrio and Messorio.
