The 2011 Messorio takes hold of all the senses and never lets up. Rich and explosive to the core, the 2011 boasts stunning intensity and depth. Today, the 2011 is painfully young and packed with tannin. Even with all of its size, the 2011 retains gorgeous aromatic complexity and tons of nuance. This is a fabulous showing from Le Macchiole.

Messorio, which was born in 1994, is Le Macchiole's interpretation of one of the grape varieties most commonly grown in the Bolgheri area. A generous grape variety, perfect for the typical Bolgherese wine blends, but tricky and difficult when made into a single varietal wine. Currently considered to be one of Italy’s most representative Merlot-based wines, Messorio is very complex and elegant and evolves beautifully in the bottle year by year.
