Wine Description

Marchesi di Gresy is an 88 acre winery made up of four estates situated in the Langhe and Monferrto. In the late 1960's, owner Alberto di Gresy decided that he no longer wanted to continue selling his families grapes to other producers, so in 1973, he began producing his own wine. The Marchesi di Gresy winery is superbly positioned in the prestigious Martinenga cru in Barbaresco, one of the most famous vineyards in the zone. This Villa Martis Nebbiolo is a dark red colour and boasta a floral nose with hints of spice. Tight on the palate, it displays wonderful flavours of roses, dried papaya and read more...charred red fruits. The palate is sweet and sappy, with well balanced acidity and tannins. This wine markedly improves in the glass and will reward further cellaring. (hide)
