D’Agata’s estate to watch – Le Macchiole

One of Italy’s most important wine estates, Le Macchiole holds the distinction of making Paleo, the country’s best 100% Cabernet Franc. Founded in the early 1980s by husband and wife team Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli, the estate is located in Bolgheri, in a cool, well-draining part of the Tuscan coast.
