Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga 2007
Editorial Reviews for Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga
A bit pruny on the nose and intense with lots of soil tones, some minty spice, some prosciutto, and pencil shavings framing lots of strawberry fruit with a top notes of smoke and vanilla, and clay. Soft, rich, and powerful in the mouth this displays lots of red fruit even some watermelon, with nice slightly rustic and spicy tannins. Fresh and powerful on the finish this is full of red cherry and earthy fruit and retains a sweetness on the long finish. This is pretty attractive 2007. 91pts

Colour: Brilliant ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: Intense and persistent, reminiscent of small fruits (cherries...) and almonds. Taste: Velvety and harmonious; good structure, with a pleasant bitterish almond aftertaste and just the right tannins to make it an attactive wine.
Wine Tasting NotesProduced from grapes grown in the same vineyard for our Barbaresco, this wine has all the character and elegance of a great nebbiolo with an intense perfume Iof fine flowers and mature berries. Fresh and pleasant on the palate with typical tannic backbone, it is ideal with grilled foods, white and red meats, and medium aged cheeses.
