Technical Info

Vineyard

Messorio is grown on two different parcels (Puntone and Vignone), from notably restricted yields (800 grams per plant).

Vinification

Messorio sees a 20-day maceration period in wood and steel tanks. Aging lasts for 18 months in oak barriques with 75% in new and 25% second passage. It was bottled in April of 2012, and aged 21 months in bottle before release.

Vintage

The year was marked by a late growth cycle, due to a cold and rainy spring, which forced the winery to postpone harvesting. The good weather at the end of the season contributed to the production of grapes in excellent condition with the right amount of polyphenols, sugar, acidity and aromas. The high day/night temperature range in late August and September helped the grapes preserve all their typical aromas, leading to good aromatic complexity. The wines appear to be fresher, with a lower alcoholic content compared to the past vintages.
