Producer Info:

Le Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy, owned by the di Grésy family since 1797, began producing their own wines in 1973 following a decision by Alberto di Grésy.

The vineyards are situated in the Langhe and Monferrato areas, which are recognized as the home of Piedmont's greatest wines.

The four estates are: Martinenga in the heart of Barbaresco, Monte Aribaldo in Treiso, Cuneo province, La Serra and Monte Colombo in Cassine, Alessandria province.

Grapes from all the estate vineyards are brought to the central winery at Martinenga to be made into high quality wines with the greatest respect for tradition and nature, where the aim is to faithfully transfer as much as possible of the identity of the terroir and the varietal into the bottle.

Tasting note: “A hot year produced a wine still aggressively tannic and reminiscent of ripe stewed fruits but nonetheless a good wine.”

Growing System: Guyot
