Barbaresco Gaiun Marchese di Gresy Piedmont Red Italy 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Marchesi di Gresy is an 88 acre winery made up of four estates situated in the Langhe and Monferrto. In the late 1960's, owner Alberto di Gresy decided that he no longer wanted to continue selling his families grapes to other producers, so in 1973, he began producing his own wine. The Marchesi di Gresy winery is superbly positioned in the prestigious Martinenga cru in Barbaresco, one of the most famous vineyards in the zone. This 1998 Barbaresco Gaiun is deep in colour and varied on the nose with notes of vanilla, mint, licorice, and caramel. It is concentrated and intense on the palate, and should drink well up until 2016. It marries well on the table with rich, meaty dishes and mature cheeses.

Alberto di Grésy was born in Milan on June 1, 1952, where he completed his studies and graduated from the Bocconi University with a Doctorate in Business Administration. Growing up with a passion for the land and the wine, he spent many weekends and most of his summer vacations at Villa Giulia. This 19th century hunting lodge, built by his grandfather, Carlo, is located on the hill called Monte Aribaldo in the heart of the Piedmont region. He supervised the agricultural operations of the family estates and concluded early on that he didn't want to limit himself to selling the grapes from his vineyards to the finest wine producers in the area as was the tradition in the Langhe. In 1973 Alberto di Grésy began vinifying his own wine: his objective was to produce wine with the best available technology while respecting tradition, and to transfer as much as possible of the character and personality of the terrain vineyard site, and varietal into the bottle.

Als Alberto di Grésy im Jahre 1982 beschloss, die Einzellage «Gaiun» in Spitzenjahren als eigenen Cru zu keltern, war es sein Ziel, einen Wein von internationalem Charakter zu kreieren. Ein Barbaresco, den nur Martinenga hervorbringen kann. Die Farbe ist rubinrot mit charakteristischen Reflexen, die ins Orange tendieren. Der Duft ist süss, sauber und intensiv, mit feinsten Vanillekomponenten versehen. Im Geschmack ist er voll und aromatisch. Struktur, Eleganz, Konzentration und Kraft verblüffen. Ein ganz grosser Barbaresco.
