Tasting Notes

Vinous 96

The 2004 Messorio is clearly the most complete of these 2004s. It is a remarkably elegant Messorio endowed with a seamless, layered personality that exudes generous dark plums, prunes, mint, licorice, smoke, chocolate and toasted oak. Despite its considerable appeal, it is a powerful, structured wine with a significant tannic backbone that will require patience. It shows well-integrated tannins, superb balance, and a seductive, inviting personality that is absolutely irresistible. [Antonio Galloni, 06/01/2008]

Robert Parker 96

This three-year jump forward in time brings us to a whole new identity for this great Tuscan Merlot. The 2004 Messorio feels outright youthful and has not reached anywhere near the same tertiary intensity that you get with 2000 and 2001. Given the heat and the general hardship of the 2003 vintage, Le Macchiole found itself in front of great challenges in 2004 as well. High yields were an issue and enormous work was achieved to cut back on grape vigor and production. This vintage also marks a stylistic shift for Messorio. From this point on, the wine shows greater sugar levels and higher concentration. This is evident in the strong build and deep footprint on display here. This is a gorgeous edition of Messorio that shows a touch of Tuscan rusticity and true grit. [28/09/2017]
