The 2010 Messorio is another superstar in this blockbuster vertical of Italian Merlot greatness. This was a hot vintage that has resulted in a softly contoured and more immediate wine. You can either drink it in the near term or put it in your cellar for safe keeping. In fact, in my initial review I had assigned a shorter drinking window but I am revising that prediction here. This year saw a greater choice in cooperage houses and a move towards more barrels from François Frères among others. Maceration times were also tweaked to go a little longer, up to 30 days. Again, the winery shifted philosophies to focus on concentration and sophistication. Oak-aging was extended to 20 months. Thanks to these changes, this edition of Messorio excels in depth and finesse. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2017-2038

Tuscan estate Le Macchiole is renowned for making some of Italy’s most inspiring wines. Passionate about creating true expressions of the vineyards, this cutting edge estate uses low yields to produce stunning fruit that requires minimal cellar intervention. Antonio Galloni believes that this estate’s “potential is limitless”.
