Tenuta delle Macchie
Tenuta delle Macchie is in the family of our customer's favourite master Italian winemaker, Paolo Caciorgna, who got the opportunity to make a wine for, and in honour of his family in the year 2000.
Casole d'Elsa is an ancient Tuscan hill town north of Siena. In contrast to the Chianti limestone hills, the soil here is volcanic, a terroir which imparts mineral spice to the wine which brings elegance and subtle nuances, and beautifully illustrates his reputation among cognoscenti as the most skilful vinifier of Sangiovese. In his hands the variety achieves a finesse and delicacy more akin to Burgundy than the Bordeaux archetype.
