(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 Messorio is a powerful wine of great intensity, complexity and depth. Dark and red fruits, undertones of leather, a sprinkling of spices, and a little bit of scorched earth work together in a wine of great finesse and exquisite balance.
(From 2009 Vintage) Messorio is widely considered to be one of Bolgheri's, if not Italy's, most outstanding renditions of pure Merlot. Intense ruby red with violet notes, tremendous ripe berry fruit on the nose with hints of pepper, spice, vanilla and voluptuous in body, with jammy red fruit exotic innuendos, and smooth tannins.
