- Apart from the stunning Barbaresco it produces, Marchesi di Gresy is a hidden gem in Piedmont and owns one of the DOCG's finest vineyards. Tucked away in the Langhe and Monferrato hills East of Alba in north-west Italy the estate can be found, but not without some difficulty. The Marchesi di Gresy winery. Or to give it its full name Tenuta Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy. is something of a hidden gem, both physically and metaphorically, for it produces some of the best wines of Barbaresco without doubt.
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. Traditional vinification
and maceration (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.
Aromatic and spicy on the nose with forest fruits, ripe plum and damson. Sumptuous and concentrated
on the palate - ripe plum and black cherry give way to a fine, long, structured finish with nice ripe tannins.
- "A seductive and enthralling wine from the iconic Marchesi di Grésy estate. Produced from their Monte Colombo vineyard in the Monferrato hills - combines rich vibrant fruit with elegance and great complexity" - Joanna Simon, Wine Journalist.
