MARCHESI DI GRESY Riserva Camp Gross Martinenga Barbaresco 2016
MARCHESI DI GRESY
With vineyards extending for 45 hectares on the hills of Langhe and Monferrato, Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy is a landmark of piedmontese winemaking, with roots tracing back to the XVIII century.
We craft fine wines, always elegant and able to enhance a variety of experiences: from great celebrations, to everyday life.
Passion, but most of all respect for tradition, nature and varietal.
Wines of the highest qualitative level that don’t over-power, but astonish for their extreme elegance and complexity.
We want to transfer to the bottle the unique class of our vineyards, with all the nuances our terroir is able to express.
Therefore most of our efforts are concentrated in taking the best care of the vineyards.
Winemaking must not alter the work done in the vineyards, but has to complete it, enhancing the natural predisposition and identity of each grape.
