Marchesi di Grésy has long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers.With four separate estates across Langhe and Monferrato - home of Piemonte's greatest wines -Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards, with 11 ha dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for its flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun.The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breathtaking natural amphitheatre surrounding the winery has been exclusively owned by the di Grésy family since 1797. It is here that grapes from each of the estates are taken to be vinified.Alberto di Grésy owns and manages the estate. In 1973 he began production of wines under the di Grésy name - vinifying their own estate grapes rather than selling to other local producers as in the past. 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.
Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga 2015
Light mahogany in colour with an orange rim. Fresh, elegant nose showing floral notes, woodland berries, sour cherry, dried orange peel and clove. The palate is layered with bright red fruit and darker spices of cigar box, cocoa and burnt coal. A fine wine, elegantly balanced with great length, complexity and good ageing potential.
