Description Sub Region Producer Notes
A breathtakingly precise evocation of its temperate year, the ’16 Messorio is pure Merlot sophistication in a bottle. Layers and layers of crisp red fruits and brooding berries float with notes of smoky minerals, sandalwood, vanilla, blood orange zest, and touches of pressed violet petals, tapenade and earth in this wine’s captivating nose. This classically styled Messorio wraps its seductive fruits around austere, fine-grained tannins, while nervy acidity animates its textured, laser-focused finish. You’ll want to cellar your ’16 Messorio for a few years before enjoying it for decades. Deriving from the estate’s Vignone estate parcel, Merlot grapes ferment for about twenty days in concrete; the wine ages for 19 months in new oak barriques before resting in bottle for 20 months. Messorio is a classic example of Italian Merlot, a story of its Bolgheri terroir, clay and limestone soils, and maker's care.
