Le Macchiole Messorio 2000
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Messorio is a textbook example of high level Merlot, blackish in color, sweet and plummy on the nose with a full panoply of vanilla, chocolate, and sage notes, dense, concentrated, sustained, and textured on its velvety palate.
Wine SpectatorA rich red, with fresh herb, fruit and Indian spice. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a lovely amount of fruit, though it lacks a bit of fruit midpalate to be outstanding. Merlot. Best after 2005. 650 cases made.
