Messiio, an original traditional name that means “the one that will come”, is the cellar’s wine of excellence, produced only in the best vintages. Made only using Merlot grapes from the most long-lived and selected vineyards of the estate, it represents the maximum expression of this grape, universally recognised as a vine with a great roundness and softness. Careful selection of the grapes, scrupulous care in the winemaking process, partial fermentation and ageing in wood all give the Messiio depth, persistence and a strong personality.

WINE-MAKING AND AGEING
Partial fermentation in Allier tonneaux. Ageing for 12 months in barriques (new and second passage) followed by assembly. Rest in bottle for at least 6 months.
Very intense garnet red.
Intense red wine. On the nose, an explosion of an infinite variety of black fruits enveloped by subtle notes of vanilla. On the palate, the aromatic component evolves towards tobacco and chocolate, with a hint of caramel. Round, full-bodied and intense.
First courses with meat sauce, cured meats and aged cheeses, grilled red meats, stews and game in general.
