Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso, 2018

Why we love it – Le Macchiole is one of the most historic wineries in Bolgheri and, over the years, it’s become a reference point for quality Tuscan wine. Founders Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli were among the region’s pioneers. They contributed significantly to Bolgheri’s growing fame thanks to their work in creating wines full of character and personality that have become a symbol of the region. Filipe is lucky to have visited here a couple of times and the rest of us are super jealous.

Pretty badass!
