Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga 2018
Bright garnet red with slight orange reflections. Intense and pleasant hints of plum and cherry blend sinuously with balsamic nuances of mint, tea leaves, dried flowers and blond pipe tobacco.
|Wine Spectator: 93
|Though firm, there is an elegance to this red, whose flavor profile ranges from strawberry and cherry to tobacco and tea. Taut and linear, with fine balance and a long, red fruit, stone and savory aftertaste.
|Wine Enthusiast: 92
|Aromas recalling camphor, woodland berries, mint and French oak waft out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the elegant, linear palate offers tart cherry, star anise and espresso framed in taut, close-grained tannins.
|Wine & Spirits: 93
|This delicate, midweight wine opens with scents of fresh cherry and dewy rose petal that lead into tangy red berry flavors brightened by a twist of orange zest. Some dark mineral tones emerge with air, but this is a wine to enjoy in the next five years.
