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.

Enjoyed this 10 April, 2011. In my cellar since Jan 2007. Almost ruby orange with some light browning at the rim. Very elegant, strong and initially almost hot on the nose with leather, sweet oak, tobacco, and smoky spices. It is fresh and light, but still rich in structure with great balance (compared to the bordeaux I had last night...) with some sweet blueberry. The taste is in great 'harmony' at this age, but would likely improve further with age. A great wine that worked very well with pigeon and raw-fried new potatoes and afterwards with aged cheese. Indeed an honourable Barbaresco. Simply a great experience.
