On the nose, intense notes of violet and dried rose petals are accompanied by scents of hay and confit, with nuances of sweet tobacco, licorice and leather. The palate is full, harmonic, velvety and embracing; intense balsamic notes unfold in a very long and balanced finish.
Producer Information: 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, Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards.
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.
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.
