The 2003 Messorio has calmed down a bit now that it has been in bottle for a few years, but it remains a decidedly opulent, full-throttle wine loaded with blueberry and blackberry jam, chocolate, sweet spices and French oak. The tannins have begun to soften a touch, but the 2003 is still at least a few years away from offering its finest drinking. This is a fabulous effort considering a torrid vintage that was especially hard on Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG)
*Cellar Selection* This is an expertly crafted Merlot that offers much in terms of intensity, charm and personality. You could drink it with a fork and knife because its concentration is dark, plush and extracted with care. Pristine aromas of flower petal, red fruit, molasses and spice are rounded off by an outstanding mouthfeel consisting of extraordinary length and polished tannins.
Wonderful aromas of crushed raspberry, strawberry and hints of vanilla follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Silky. Hard to resist already. Pure Merlot. Almost impossible to find. (JS)
Dark red. Enticing aromas of blackberry, ground coffee and black pepper, with a definite herbal twist. Brooding and muscular on the palate, offering a rare combination of elegance and power, thanks to ripe acidity and sweet tannins. This is always the most tannic of Le Macchiole's wines, a characteristic Campolmi believes is due to the soil. (ID)
