Production Notes

Made from Sauvignon grapes cultivated on Marchesi di Grésy's Monte Aribaldo (in the commune of Treiso) and Martinenga (Barbaresco) estate. The vineyards vary from south and north to west-facing but they all have an average altitude of around 250 to 330 metres above sea level. The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed and the must is cold settled at a low temperature. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at approx. 17 degrees Centigrade for one week. The wine is allowed to develop in the vat for three months before sterile bottling.

Producer Information

Marchesi di Grésy has long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers.

With four separate estates across Langhe and Monferrato - home of Piemonte's greatest wines -Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards, with 11 ha dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for its flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun.

The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breathtaking natural amphitheatre surrounding the winery has been exclusively owned by the di Grésy family since 1797. It is here that grapes from each of the estates are taken to be vinified.

Alberto di Grésy owns and manages the estate. In 1973 he began production of wines under the di Grésy name - vinifying their own estate grapes rather than selling to other local producers as in the past. His philosophy is simple but effective; to produce wines using the best available technology that respect tradition and promote the character and personality of the terrain and grape variety.
