This product is currently sold out.
Marchesi di Grésy has long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers. With four separate estates across Langhe and Monferrato - home of Piemonte's greatest wines -Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards, with 11 hectares dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for its flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun. The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breath-taking natural amphitheatre surrounding the winery has been exclusively owned by the di Grésy family since 1797.
A super-concentrated powerful and complex Barbera from the respected Marchesi di Grésy estate - sourced from a fantastic south-facing vineyard in the heart of the Batbera d'Asti zone. A marked counterpoint to the elegant Barbaresco wines from di Grésy.
Marchesi di Grésy Monte Colombo Barbera d'Asti wine is deep ruby in colour with intense, super-ripe aromas of red berry and cherry fruit, hints of blackberry conserve and liquorice, enveloped in sweet toasty vanilla oak. The palate is generous and rich, showing concentrated but soft black fruits and smoky spicy, chocolatey notes. The richness of fruit and spicy oak is carefully balanced by the high acidity of the Barbera grape. Robust enough to cope with strongly flavoured red meats or try with pasta with a tomato or meat sauce.
