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 and complexity.
Marchesi di Gresy (or Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy to give them their full name) 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
