"Here's a "wow" wine you won't easily forget. Messorio is all Merlot, and happily delivers the softness, richness and overall opulence that we love in this noble grape variety. What elevates this particular expression and vintage is the true elegance and sophistication evident here. This is a huge wine, but itâs not exaggerated and the finish is as long and smooth as they come. - ML" (12/10)
96 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2007 Messorio is another standout. A super-ripe expression of fruit is balanced with considerable structure, delicacy and finesse, with scents of mocha, graphite, French oak, licorice and new leather that emerge over time. Over the last few months the Messorio has absorbed its oak beautifully. The finish is long, nuanced and utterly impeccable. That said, this remains an intense, towering wine in need of a long slumber. The 2007 isn't one of the more massive Messorios, instead it is a wine built on elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027." (10/10)
94 Pts James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com
"This shows aromas of dried mushrooms and blackberries. Then turns to spices and blackberries. Some fresh herbs too. Complex. Full body, with super silky tannins and a lovely mineral, berry and spice aftertaste. Subtle and enticing. Better in a couple of years. Gorgeous pure Merlot. Find the wine."
93 Pts Wine Spectator
"A soft and decadent wine that makes you want to drink it. Full and velvety, with chocolate and subtle vanilla character interspersed with meat and berry notes. Pure Merlot. Best after 2012. 835 cases made. - JS" (10/10)
92 Pts Ian Dagata - Vinous Media
"Deep red. Fresh blackberry and dark cherry aromas are complemented by fresh mint, coffee, smoke and black pepper. Dense but suave, with sweet black cherry and dark chocolate flavors nicely framed by supple tannins and brightened by harmonious acidity. Finishes fresh and focused, with lingering dark cherry and mint notes and an obvious coconut nuance. This is a slightly sweeter, less herbal and less wild style of Messorio than usual, and an excellent example of the higher-alcohol, riper style of merlot typical of the Tuscan coast." (10/10)
"100% Merlot. Rich and ripe then lifted. Lots of pleasure here. Sweet and transparent. Very far from the sort of Masseto model. Mineral. This wine is usually pretty closed at this age apparently. There is definite sweetness here. From 2007 they have been even more vigilant on the provenance of oak and the period of oak ageing. Untoasted oak. Some spice but pretty linear and slightly inky." - 17 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages.
"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
"The wine is 100% merlot. The harvest date is the 1st-2nd weeks of September. The fermentation is done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, and then the wine is aged in new oak barriques for 16/18 months." - Importer
