Winemaker Notes

Brilliant garnet red color with light orange hues. Intense and harmonious aromas , reminiscent of violet, wild wood berries, strawberries and sour black cherry jam with a pleasant balsamic note of cloves. Full, harmonius, with good complexity and persistent aftertaste.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Although the 2010 Barbaresco Martinenga is sold out, Alberto di Gresy and I wanted to make a record of it in the Wine Advocate database. The reason is simple: This is a stunning and impeccable wine that deserves every extra bit of attention. The bouquet is generous and full with lingering tones of balsam herb, forest berry and dark cola. The effect is elegant, polished and smooth. I think this may be the most beautiful Barbaresco Martinenga produced in recent memory. If you have a bottle, hold onto it tight. Some 12,500 bottles were produced.

James Suckling
A beautiful red with blueberry, cedar, blackberry and chocolate powder aromas and flavors. Full body, round tannins and a fresh finish. Extremely well done for the vintage. Better in 2017.

Marchesi di Gresy Winery Image
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 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: Alberto di Grésy's 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.

The Tenute Cisa Asinary dei Marchesi di Grésy, made up of three estates situated in the Langhe and Monferrato zones. The Martinenga estate in the Langhe grows primarily Nebbiolo grapes for the production of Barbaresco D.O.C.G., Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. Nearby is the Monte Aribaldo estate where Dolcetto d'Alba and Chardonnay are grown. In Monferrato, the La Serra estate produces exclusively Moscato d'Asti D.O.C.G.

A wine that most perfectly conveys the spirit and essence of its place, Barbaresco is true reflection of terroir. Its star grape, like that in the neighboring Barolo region, is Nebbiolo. Four townships within the Barbaresco zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

Broadly speaking there are more similarities in the soils of Barbaresco and Barolo than there are differences. Barbaresco’s soils are approximately of the same two major soil types as Barolo: blue-grey marl of the Tortonion epoch, producing more fragile and aromatic characteristics, and Helvetian white yellow marl, which produces wines with more structure and tannins.

Nebbiolo ripens earlier in Barbaresco than in Barolo, primarily due to the vineyards’ proximity to the Tanaro River and lower elevations. While the wines here are still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more feminine side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Typical in a well-made Barbaresco are expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice. These wines need a few years before they reach their peak, the best of which need over a decade or longer. Bottle aging adds more savory characteristics, such as earth, iron and dried fruit.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
