Tasting Notes

Ripe red cherry fruit is rich and deep with aromas of red currants and violets. The palate is lush and generous for Dolcetto, with red berry fruit, wild herbs and mocha. This wine is slightly over medium weight and the intensity is surprising.

WINE INFORMATION

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy has been owned by the di Grésy family since 1797. The estate includes four properties located in Langhe and Monferrato, home to Piedmont’s greatest wines.  Before the 1960s the estate operated like a traditional farm, producing livestock, vegetables and fruits, including grapes.  At the time, the grapes were sold to the finest wine producers in the area, as was the tradition in the Langhe.  In the early 1970s, Alberto di Grésy realized the potential of his vineyards and decided that he had to vinify his own grapes.

In 2013, Alberto’s son and daughter, Alessandro and Ludovica di Grésy began their adventure in the family’s winery working alongside their father.  To this day, Marchesi di Grésy only vinifies grapes coming from their 111 acres of organic vineyards. The modern cellar is built entirely underground and uses solar panels for energy..

The Monte Aribaldo estate, the first property of the family dating back to 1650, rises between Treiso and Barbaresco and overlooks the valley of Martinenga.  Dolcetto d'Alba, Chardonnay and Sauvignon are grown here, at an average elevation of 1,200 feet.  This wine ages in stainless steel for a number of months before release.
