The 'youngest' Macchiona release is pretty, with ripe tannins. Lots of leather, cherry and mature cedar. Will still mellow and evolve over the next couple years.

The Macchiona cuvée comes from vineyards planted between 20 and 40 years ago on clay soils. The vines see a lot of heat in the summer - this part of Emilia-Romagna will sometimes see temperatures above parts of Sicily. The soils are nutrient-poor, but rich in phosphorus and potassium, which can make Macchiona closed and quite reductive when young. Bottle age is essential for these wines to show their best.

We approach our wines in the same way we approach our cheeses: with respect, admiration and above all a commitment to exciting, transparent winemaking by some of the most exciting Vignerons in the world. Rather than focus on place or style we concentrate on finding absolutely delicious wines at a wide range of price points with a story to tell.
