Marchesi di Grésy
2018 Piemonte, Italy, 75cl
A monopole owned by Marchesi di Grésy since 1797, taking its name from the Martinenga vineyard, one of the zone’s most prized vineyard sites in the commune of Barbaresco. This single vineyard (of 11.93 ha) has the shape of an amphitheatre, with Asili to the west and Rabaja to the north-east. These south-southwest facing vineyards have a favourable microclimate, which allows the production of high quality grapes even in potentially difficult vintages. Situated at 280 metres above sea level, the soil is calcereous, with blue marl and a small percentage of sand. Fine, gently floral nose with wild cherry and redcurrant fruit. Spicy and lifted with notes of dried herbs. More sour cherry fruit on the palate, which combines richness and structure with complex layers of balsamic, toasty notes, and dried fruits. Fresh acidity gives balance, and the finish is savoury and textured with integrated oak. A truly brilliant wine!

Behind the bottle: Marchesi di Grésy
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 Barbaresco’s, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun. The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breath-taking 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.
