MARCHESI DI GRESY MONFERRATO ROSSO
Owned by the di Grésy family since 1797, Marchesi di Gresy has long been recognised as one of Piemontes top producers.
Its vineyards are situated in the Langhe and Monferrato areas - home of Piemontes greatest wines - across four separate estates. Of its 35 hectares of vineyards, 11 ha are dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for the flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun.
Alberto di Grésy owns and manages the estate and his philosophy is simple but effective; to produce wines using the best available technology that respect tradition and promote the character and personality of the terrain and grape variety.
He has produced a wine that can be descibed as seductive, rich and enthralling - a brilliant northern Italian take on cool-climate Merlot.
It is aromatic, spicy, mature forest fruits, notes of ripe plum and damson on the nose. Velvety and sumptuous on the palate - plum, rich vanilla and sour cherry give way to a fine, long, structured finish with ripe tannins. A full-bodied wine which exudes elegance.
