Marchesi di Grésy Barbaresco Riserva Camp Gros wine is an iconic cru from di Grésy. Camp Gros has been produced since 1978 and only in the best vintages. Aromas of savoury, sweet tobacco, dried cherry fruit and rose petal. An immensely full and complex wine with layers of ripe plum and wild cherry fruit on the palate. Well-structured with a firm tannic backbone - the richness of the fruit makes this approachable now, but this is a wine built for long-term ageing. The long and full finish has more tobacco and spice notes, all balanced by fresh acidity. Pair with the best red meat you can afford, cooked in the least time possible.
Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
Grapes: Nebbiolo 100%
Volume: 6 x 75cl
Marchesi di Grésy Barbaresco Riserva Camp Gros 2016*: “Gorgeous scents of cherry, raspberry, rose hip and white pepper are augmented by leather, tobacco and chalky, mineral flavours in this detailed, complex red, which starts out fresh and inviting, before the dense matrix of tannins puts a lock on the finish. Nonetheless, this has length, harmony and stellar potential.” 96pts – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (30th April 2022 issue)
Marchesi di Grésy Barbaresco Riserva Camp Gros 2016*: “Crystalline aromatic purity: light and leafy, it has pomegranate, camphor, violet and balsamic depth. Firm but polished, the palate is crisp and graceful. with a sumptuous mid-palate and an extremely savoury, liquorice-laden finish. One can appreciate the quality of the vintage through a respectful winemaking style. It’s a wine built to last but, as can be the case with some of the greatest wines, is delicious to drink now. Drink 2021-2036.” 96 pts – Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter (December 2021)
