Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Scents of succulent red and blue fruit, mocha, grilled herbs, wet river rocks, cigar wrapper and exotic spices explode from the glass in this brooding ’11 Messorio. Careful to pick the Merlot grapes before the warm weather of the 2011 fall, winemaker Luca Rettondini and longtime consultant Luca D'Attoma knocked it out of the park with their intense, concentrated, precise Messorio. Though the palate is tightly wound and chock-full of burly, chewy tannins, the warm weather ’11 Messorio argues for earlier approachability than some other bottlings. That said, this Merlot has age-worthy structure, and it needs some time in the cellar before true drinkability. Fermented for about twenty days, then aged for fourteen months in oak (75 percent new), Messorio is a classic example of Italian Merlot, a story of its Bolgheri terroir, clay and limestone soils, and maker's care. Le Macchiole crafted only 850 cases of its Messorio in 2011.
