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.

Vineyards

The Merlot grapes come from di Grésy's Monte Colombo vineyards in the comune of Cassine, in the Asti zone. These were planted to use in a blended cuvée with Barbera, but Alberto was so impressed with the quality that he decided instead to produce this single varietal wine.

Vinification

Traditional vinification and 14 day maceration with regular pumpings over. Malolactic fermentation in tank. 12 months in used French barriques (Allier) followed by 24 months in Slavonian oak casks.

Tasting Notes

Aromatic and spicy on the nose with forest fruits, ripe plum and damson. The complex palate has notes of dark plum and sour cherry, together with ripe tannins, and toasty, cedar, vanilla and balsamic characters - leading to a fine, long and structured finish.

Excellent with a simply cooked steak, casseroles, game, rabbit and lamb.
