Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga 1985

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Deep, rich and full-bodied, with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry flavor. With its satiny texture beneath a veil of tannin, it's a very impressive wine now. It's also very long and elegant... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1985 Gresy, Marchesi di Gaiun Martinenga Barbaresco 1500ml

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.

Rich and earthy, with overtones of mint and anise, very tannic, full-bodied and concentrated. Needs lots of cellar time for the raspberry flavor to emerge... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1985 Gresy, Marchesi di Martinenga Barbaresco 1500ml
