ABOUT THE WINERY

In the 1960’s, Alberto di Grésy spent much of his time supervising the agricultural operations of the family estates when he 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 he began vinifying his own wine with the objectives of transferring as much possible character and personality of the terrain, vineyard site and varietal into the bottle, while producing wines using the best available technology and respecting traditions. 

Today Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy is comprised of four estates located in the Langhe and Monferrato areas, home of the greatest Piedmontese wines.  Today Marchesi di Grésy owns and vinifies 88 acres of vineyards, divided among the Martinenga, Monte Aribaldo, La Serra and Monte Colombo estates. Notably, Martinenga is one of the Piedmont’s finest vineyards, and one of only a few monopoles in the region, which has been in the family since the 1700's.  Today Martinenga not only produces some of the finest cru-designated Barbaresco there is and is planted to the Nebbiolo’s Lampia and Rosé sub-varieties, from which the grape’s most elegant Nebbiolo wines are made. With its southern exposure, blue marl soil and elevations from 689 to 946 feet, Martinenga possesses ideal Nebbiolo growing conditions.  Martinenga also is home to the only experimental vineyard for the clonal selection of Nebbiolo in the Barbaresco area. Eleven different clones on an area of 2.600 square meters are constantly monitored by the team, in cooperation with agronomists and oenologists of the National Research Council (CNR) who study the grapes to better understand how different clones respond to the environment and to climate change.

Marchesi di Grésy Barbaresco "Camp Gros" Martinenga Riserva DOCG 2013

I love the tension and the glossy elegance here. The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Camp Gros Martinenga is silky, bright and buoyant. It is complete and shows a lot of depth. It offers fresh acidity, and while it has a lean approach, it definitely has impressive length. This wine should evolve nicely over the next 10-20 years.
