Tenute Cisa Asinari Dei Marchesi di Grésy Nebbiolo Barbaresco 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 94 The 2005 Barbaresco Camp Gros Martinenga shares much of the purity and transparency of the Gaiun in this vintage, but with the greater structure and minerality of this part of the Martinenga hillside. Sweet roses, cherries, minerals, menthol and spices are some of the nuances that are found in this articulate, finely-tuned Camp Gros. Here, too, the tannins are polished and sensual throughout. The Camp Gros is made from a parcel next to Rabaja and also spends more time in large, neutral oak, both of which contribute to the wines firm, classic feel. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

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.

Tight on the nose with an earthy cast over cut cherry fruit, sweet herbal notes, a hint of sottobosco Bosco, sweet necco chocolate wafer and a touch of sweet wood showing cedary shadings. Silky and rather small scaled in the mouth this is almost ready displaying nice frutto del Bosco flavors supported by small austere tannins which appear on a finish lengthened by nice acid drive. perhaps a bit dry, there is still plenty of attractive burnished cherry fruit with a nice citrusy, dried rind notes adding detail, though the tannins do remain a touch youthful. 89pts

Wine Tasting NotesA classic red wine for the whole meal with a red-violet color, intense vinous perfume, and a slight grassy note. The wine is elegant and smooth, fresh and balanced, with the slightly bitter after taste typical of dolcetto.
