Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso DOC

2011

In a Nutshell

Seductive, rich and enthralling - a brilliant northern Italian take on cool-climate Merlot.

Tasting Notes

Aromatic and spicy on the nose with forest fruits, ripe plum and damson. Sumptuous and concentrated on the palate - ripe plum and sour cherry give way to a fine, long, structured finish with ripe tannins.

Production Notes

The Merlot grapes come from di Grésy's Monte Colombo vineyards in the comune of Cassine, in the Asti zone. These were planted to use in a blended cuvée with Barbera, but Alberto was so impressed with the quality that he decided instead to produce this single varietal wine. Traditional vinification and maceration (14 day maceration) with regular pumpings over. Malolactic fermentation in tank. 12 months in used French barriques (Allier) followed by 24 months in Slavonian oak casks.
