Cellar/Tasting Notes
The estate was created at Bolgheri in 1983 as a result of Eugenio Campolmi’s desire to get closer to nature and establish an intimate relationship with his vines. His idea was to start off from the vineyards, investing heavily in research and experimentation (including the use of varieties rarely planted in the area) and thus demonstrating that even a small estate can contribute towards making a wine region important. He and his wife, Cinzi Merli's, fruitful efforts paid off and now Le Macchiole is a highly acclaimed and respected vineyard.

Cinzi Merli, who now runs the vineyard (since her husband's passing in 2002), describes the Messorio as: "the perfect child: the one who works hard and who you can always be proud of. It is the wine that offers the utmost expression of the character of our terroir, and which displays structure, elegance and seductive perfumes. It is the iconic expression of our DNA. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The 2001 Messorio is virtually impossible to fully appreciate in this setting because it is so many years away from maturity. The fruit is breathtaking in its beauty but remains quite primary, with only the subtlest hints of early tertiary nuance coming through from time to time. The finish is exceptionally polished, nuanced and silky. The 2001 is tough to resist today, but it will be even better in a few years’ time."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Luscious blackberry and raspberry sauce aromas. Full-bodied, velvety and chewy tannins. Big and juicy wine. Long. Blockbuster style. Serious rock 'n' roll red here. Pure Merlot."
