Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso DOC

2015

In a Nutshell

A fine, mature red from the iconic Marchesi di Grésy estate.

Tasting Notes

Aromatic and spicy on the nose with forest fruits, ripe plum and damson. The complex palate has notes of dark plum and sour cherry, together with ripe tannins, and toasty, cedar, vanilla and balsamic characters - leading to a fine, long and structured finish.

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 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.
