Scrio was born in 1994, out of Eugenio Campolmi's wish to produce a wine which would best express his vision of Syrah, his favorite grape variety.
As all Le Macchiole wines, Scrio has an original personality and it is one of the very few Syrah wines produced in Bolgheri that stands out differendy from French Syrahs.
It is a very limited production of 5,000 bottles, the result of a painstaking selection of the best bunches harvested in our vineyards year after year.
"Scrio" is a Tuscan word that translates as pure, genuine, honest. It is usually used to refer to people who are pure of heart.
