Description

A seductive and enthralling wine from the iconic Marchesi di Grésy estate. Produced from their Monte Colombo vineyard in the Monferrato hills – combines rich vibrant fruit with elegance and great complexity.

The Merlot grapes come from di Grésy’s Monte Colombo vineyards in the comune of Cassine, in the Asti zone. These were planted to use in a blended cuvée with Barbera, but Alberto was so impressed with the quality that he decided instead to produce this single varietal wine. Traditional vinification and maceration (14 day maceration) with regular pumpings over. Malolactic fermentation in tank. 12 months in used French barriques (Allier) followed by 24 months in Slavonian oak casks.

I can’t believe it’s not Gavi!
