Le Macchiole Messorio 2020
“The 2020 Messorio is opulent yet elegant, offering wonderful notes of pure kirsch, blackberry, cedar, and incense, and lavender as well as sweet herbs. It has a round and full texture, with velvety tannin and notes of fresh red plum and crunchy redcurrant along with a bit of mocha and dusty earth. It is a generous wine but feels fresh in balance with its warmth.” —A.F 1/2023
Le Macchiole can best be defined as the “Boutique Bolgheri.” The winery is known for its spectacular single-varietal wines, and their signature grape varieties are Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc and work is always conducted with the priority being "the expression of the land." The winery continues to evolve in both the vineyards and in the cellar to allow the soil characteristics from this estate property to be the defining identity in the wines.
