Winemaker 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 innuendos, and smooth tannins.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Messorio will shed its baby fat and some of those pronounced oak tones as it unwinds in the cellar. This is an expertly crafted Merlot that offers so much in terms of charm, intensity and finesse. The opulence of its dark fruit and black cherry is offset against lingering tones of spice and leather. You'll need to wait a bit. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
You might be tempted to drink this merlot on release, to enjoy its prodigious richness, its scent of freshly turned earth and the potent juiciness of the fruit, a tight kernel of purple flavor that expands even as the tannins restrain it, pulling it back so the wine feels withheld. What tactile pleasure the wine offers now will gain with bottle age; as the tannins meld, they will offer more complexity, while the fruit is fresh enough to handle their touches of heat.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
pure version, evoking cherry and plum fruit shaded by oak spice and smoke accents. This is firm, supported by a backbone of acidity and tannins. Tightly wound, this needs time and should develop over the long haul. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Le Macchiole, Italy

Long before it was fashionable, Eugenio Campolmi saw the potential of his homeland, buying his first vineyard in Bolgheri in 1975 baptised "Le Macchiole". In 1987, he hired famed oenologist Vittorio Fiore as a consultant before the later was joined by Luca d'Attoma for years later. In contrast to his renowned neighbors who focused on Bordeaux blends, Campolmi focused on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Soon Le Macchiole joined Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri. Following Eugenio's death in 2002, his wife Cinzia Merli, who shares her husband's passion, took over at the estate. Working with Luca D'Attoma, she has carried on her husband's legacy by continuing to make great Tuscan wines.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
