Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso 2012

Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso 2012

£18.00

From iconic Piedmont producer Marchesi di Gresy in North Western Italy, they are famed for their Barbaresco wines but also produce an outstanding Chardonnay and this exceptional Monferatto Rosso made with 100% Merlot.

Country: Italy
Region: Piedmont
Grape: Merlot

If you are looking for a premium Merlot, great with food and worthy of rubbing shoulders with serious Right-bank Bordeaux wines, then this is my recommendation. The wines of Gresy are always popular with our customers, but for value this Monferatto Rosso in their range is always a winner! Aromatic and spicy on the nose with plum and damson. The palate is complex and has flavours of plum, sour cherry, cedar, vanilla and balsamic notes, soft powdery tannins and a long structured finish.
