Marchesi di Gresy 2020 'Martinenga' Nebbiolo, Langhe, Piemonte, Italy
Shipping calculated at checkout.
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: Marchesi di Gresy is nestled mid-slope within the amphitheater-shaped Martinenga vineyard with spectacular views of Barbaresco. Martinenga itself spans a cross section of vineyards that starts at Asili on one end and ends at Rabajà on the other. More recently the estate has undertaken a gradual replanting with the goal of introducing more modern clones.
- Vinification: Produced from grapes grown in the same vineyard as the Barbaresco, this wine has all the character and elegance of a great Nebbiolo with an intense perfume of fine flowers and mature fruit. Maceration on the skins lasts for 6/7 days at a controlled temperature of 26° C. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in full after the alcoholic one is completed.
