Marchesi di Gresy 2012 'Camp Gros' Martinenga Riserva, Barbaresco DOCG, Piemonte, Italy

Marchesi di Grésy is made up of four estates situated in the Langhe and the Monferrato zones and is recognized for producing many of the Piedmont region’s greatest wines. In the late 1960s, Alberto di Grésy began supervising the family’s agricultural operations, concluding early on that he did not want to continue selling his grapes to the area’s finest wine producers but instead to capture their elegance in-house. In 1973 he began making his own wine, adhering to the highest quality standards and respect for terroir

Winemaker: Matteo Sasso

Farming: Practicing Organic

Variety: Nebbiolo

Terroir: Located within the amphitheater-shaped monopole of 'Martinenga', 'Camp Gros' is the smaller plot within that expresses the power and structure of Martinenga. The 35-40 year old vines are planted in limestone and blue marl, with southern exposure and elevations ranging from 820 to 918 feet. 

Vinification: Selected yeasts. 10-14 day fermentation with submerged cap. 

Aging: The wine is aged 12-15 months in barriques and an additional 12-18 months in Slavonian oak casks. An additional 26 months of aging occurs in bottle.

Tasting notes: While 2012 provided a softer, gentler iteration of Barbaresco, Camp Gros still brings the power. This highly collectible and cellarable bottle is best enjoyed after at least 10-15 years of aging. The longer it ages, the finer its tannins will become, and the more sanguine and earthy the red fruit tones will turn. This vineyard has historically hit all the classic markers of macerated strawberries, dried rose petal, wet tobacco leaf and tar, while expressing leathery tannins in youth that become almost chocolaty with age.
