The 2014 Messorio is another very pretty and expressive wine from Le Macchiole. The 2014 has lovely mid-palate density, especially for the year, along with a decidedly exotic passion fruit/apricot quality that will only grow as the wine continues to develop in bottle. I expect the 2014 starts to drink well relatively early, but it also has enough freshness and balance to hold for a number of years. Hints of truffle, raspberry jam, blood orange and spice infuse the layered, creamy finish. Drink: 2019-2029

The name Messorio refers to the ancient Tuscan practice of wheat harvesting. Once it meant wheat, now it is all about grape harvesting. 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
