    Winemaker's Notes:

    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 innuendoes, and smooth tannins

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers fresh herbs and berries on the nose, with hints of coffee and vanilla. Full-bodied, soft and fruity, with a green olive undertone and lots of new wood. Builds on the palate. Tannic. Merlot.

    Wine Spectator

    Initially somewhat restrained, the 2005 Messorio opens up with time in the glass, showing an array of dark fruit, plums, licorice and truffles, with sweet, silky-textured tannins. Even though this is a somewhat slender Messorio in relative terms, it has all the qualities of first-class Merlot.

    The Wine Advocate

    Big and savory, with strong aromas of olives and spice, this wine grows more opulent with air, combining fig and crushed blueberries with the tannins edging toward overripeness. It should become more complex with time, or decant now.
