Fertuna Maremma Toscana DOC “Mesiio” (2012)
“Messiio” Merlot (2012)
Messiio, a name originating from the tradition that means “he who will come”, is the wine of excellence of the cellar, produced only in the best vintages. Made with Merlot grapes only, coming from the most long-lived and selected vineyards of the estate, it represents the maximum expression of this blend, universally recognized as a vine with great roundness and softness. The careful selection of the grapes, the obsessive care in the winemaking process, the partial fermentation and aging in wood give Messiio depth, persistence and a strong personality.
Grapes: 100% merlot
Vinification: Partial fermentation in Allier tonneaux. Aging for 12 months in barriques (new and second passage) followed by assembly. Rest in the bottle for at least 6 months.
Tasting Notes: Intense red wine. The nose is an explosion of black fruits in an infinite variety, wrapped in subtle notes of vanilla. On the palate the aromatic component evolves towards tobacco and chocolate, with a light note of caramel. Round, full-bodied and intense.
Pairings: First courses with meat sauce, cured meats and aged cheeses, grilled red meats, stews in general and game.
Format: 750 ml
