From the Critics:

  • "This offers fresh herbs and berries on the nose, with hints of coffee and vanilla. Full-bodied, soft and fruity, with a green olive undertone and lots of new wood. Builds on the palate. Tannic. Merlot. Best after 2012. 700 cases made." -95 points Wine Spectator

    "Initially somewhat restrained, the 2005 Messorio opens up with time in the glass, showing an array of dark fruit, plums, licorice and truffles, with sweet, silky-textured tannins. Even though this is a somewhat slender Messorio in relative terms, it has all the qualities of first-class Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017." -93 points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate

    "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."

    "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." -Importer - 95 Pts Wine Spectator
