The Macchiole Messorio 2009 is a 100% Merlot from the famous Tuscan region. This vintage is one of the best with such a wonderful richness and chewy tannins. Very complex aromas characterize this wine, scents of raspberry and dark chocolate can be savored combined with the unique aromas of spicy fruits and rosemary. This Macchiole Messorio is very long lasting and powerful on the palate with the complexity of many spectacular aromas. The Messorio enjoys a long maturing ability.
Parker : 91 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2009 Messorio (Merlot) emerges from the glass with dark cherries, plums, mocha, smoke, incense and grilled herbs. There is plenty of power and depth, but little of the character that makes Messorio a great wine in its best vintages. In short, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about, and I can't remember the last time that was the case with Messorio. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
