Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Gaiun Martinenga
$105 / bottle
This property and the Martinenga vineyard have been owned by the di Gresy family since 1797! The farm produced lots of products including grapes. In the 1970s, many growers in the region began to make wine from their own vineyards, rather than selling it off, including the di Gresy estate. This is among the very best “barbareschi” made.
From Parker’s The Wine Advocate: “What a pretty wine. The Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy 2016 Barbaresco Gaiun Martinenga reveals some of that candied cherry, blue violet and medical herb that we saw in the other releases from the historic Martinenga vineyard, but in the case of this vintage, all those aromas are presented with heightened intensity and clarity. The tannin is firm, but it serves to elevate and prop up that delicate palette of flavors and aromas. I'd give this wine a few extra years and a good decanting, and your patience will be amply rewarded. I am very taken by this beautiful expression.”
