Messorio, a Merlot monovarietal, is the winery’s flagship wine. Its initial vintage was 1994, and since then it has received much critical acclaim, including a 100-point score from the Wine Spectator for the 2004 vintage. Yields are managed tightly through the use of low vigor rootstocks and drastic thinning of clusters.
The result is a complex wine with austerity, virility and elegant structure. Tannin and fruit are in perfect harmony in 2011, and despite its early strong personality, it is very enjoyable even young.
