The Story

Messorio is our personal interpretation of one of the grape varieties most commonly grown in the Bolgheri area: Merlot.
Though grown on the estate since the first year of production, Merlot was made into a single varietal wine after many years, in a limited production of 300 bottles of vintage 1994. 

We have two vineyards planted with Merlot grapes: Puntone, planted in 1993, and Vignone, planted in 1999, both of them featuring excellent pedoclimatic characteristics, including a good percentage of clay and sand, which allow for wines of great complexity and finesse. 

Each vineyard gives different wine styles: Merlot grapes from the Puntone vineyard give wines with fresh aromas and elegant tannins, backed by acidity which lends the wine a more vertical style; the wines produced from the Vignone vineyard are, instead, more complex, with intense fruity notes and a more structured tannic texture, supported by excellent minerality.

The name Messorio has ancient origins. It refers to the ancient Tuscan practice of wheat harvesting. We chose it because harvesting has always been the most important time of the year in the countryside: once it meant wheat, now, to us, it is all about grapes.

Written Notes

Profound, dense in the glass and in the sensory impressions, Messorio 2019 is a dark, decisive wine with notes reminiscent of black prunes, blackberries, incense, cassis, juniper berries, cherry liqueur, quinine and rhubarb. In the background the secondary complexity shows itself with hints of graphite and crushed blueberries. Full bodied, velvety tannins of admirable beauty and a truly agile, dynamic finale for this muscular Merlot yet still lively and brilliant. From the home of Le Macchiole. Better from 2025.
