Le Macchiole is a story of human endeavor. And of one man in particular. It all started with Eugenio's need to find new stimuli. Highly motivated by his desire to realize the ambitious project of producing great wines and truly respectful of the vineyard. To realize this dream, he began planning out his vineyards and planting a number of different varieties in the few hectares he had. In 1991 he decided to take on the young winemaker, Luca D'Attoma, who immediately espoused his idea of creating a wholly original wine, one that would break with the status quo. Eugenio's untimely death did not put an end to this dream: Cinzia moved in and assumed the new role of managing the winery herself. With courage and tenacity, she carried forward and further developed her husband's project and in 2008, was rewarded for her efforts: Le Macchiole's wine, Messorio, was given a score of 100 by Wine Spectator.
