Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco "Camp Gros" Reserva 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous The flagship 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Camp Gros Martinenga is soft, supple and gracious, but much of that is the personality of the vintage. This is one of the most open-knit and easy to appreciate vintages of Camp Gros I can remember tasting. Beams of supporting tannin and salinity give the wine its distinctive personality. Scents of pine, menthol, rose petal and quinine give the wine its soaring, penetrating aromatics. Above all else, the 2011 is classy, subtle and polished. The 2011 spent 30 days on the skins and was aged in a combination of 60% barrique and 40% cask.

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.
