Tasting Notes

The 2005 Messorio is just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic complexity, the stage at which Messorio starts to get really exciting, in my view. Exotic flowers, white truffles, spices and black cherries are super-expressive in the glass. The 2005 has enough depth to drink well for another decade or so. The power of the best vintages is, of course, missing, but that just means the 2005 will reach its apogee in less time, while remaining a bit less imposing than the truly muscular Messorios.

The 2005 is a pretty, mid-weight Messorio laced with dark blueberries; blackberries and all sorts of flowers. The wine turns increasingly delicate in the glass, as its perfumed, feminine qualities emerge over time. This is a classy, understated Messorio with plenty of room for development in the coming years.
