CAMP GROS BARBARESCO, Marchesi di Gresy 2006



An attractive floral and fragrant wine with dried red fruit and delicate violet and rose petal aromas. The palate has warm, dried fruits with sweet tobacco and liquoice notes. Fine berry characters are balanced by fresh acidity and a firm tannic backbone.

Marchesi di Gresy (or Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy to give them their full name) have long been recognised as one of Piemonte’s top producers. The winery has been in the family of owner Alberto di Gresy for centuries. The company owns 35 hectares of vineyards on 4 different estates, most notably the famous Martinenga vineyard where 11 hectares are dedicated to growing Nebbiolo grapes for the production of their flagship Barbaresco – Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun. With its blue marl soil and near ideal southerly exposure, this is considered to be one of the outstanding ‘crus’ of Barbaresco.
