Notes

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.

Details

Marchesi di Gresy have long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers. The winery has been in the family of owner Alberto di Gresy for centuries. The company owns 35 hectares of vineyards on 4 different estates, most notably the famous Martinenga vineyard where 11 hectares are dedicated to growing Nebbiolo grapes for the production of their flagship Barbaresco - Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun. With its blue marl soil and near ideal southerly exposure, this is considered to be one of the outstanding 'crus' of Barbaresco.

region Piemonte
Region Piemonte wine is the range of Italian wines made in the province of Piedmont in the northwestern corner of Italy. The most well known wines from the region include Barolo and Barbaresco. They are made from the Nebbiolo grape. These wines are ideal for storage and a well-aged Barolo for instance may leave a feeling of drinking velvet because the tannins are polished and integrated more and more into the wine. As the wine matures the colour becomes more brownish and rust-red.
