Wine Description

(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.

    Dark red. Enticing aromas of blackberry, ground coffee and black pepper, with a definite herbal twist. Brooding and muscular on the palate, offering a rare combination of elegance and power, thanks to ripe acidity and sweet tannins. This is always the most tannic of Le Macchiole's wines, a characteristic Campolmi believes is due to the soil.
