Monferrato Rosso

Seductive, rich and enthralling – a brilliant northern Italian take on cool-climate Merlot.

Aromatic, spicy, mature forest fruits, notes of ripe plum and damson on the nose.

Velvety and sumptuous on the palate – plum, rich vanilla and sour cherry give way to a fine, long, structured finish with ripe tannins. A full-bodied wine which exudes elegance.

Marchesi di Gresy (or Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Gresy to give them their full name) have long been recognised as one of Piemonte’s top producers. The winery has been in the family of owner Alberto di Gresy for centuries. The company owns 35 hectares of vineyards on 4 different estates, better known for the outstanding Barbarescos.

Excellent with a simply cooked steak but also superb with casseroles, or game such as duck.   Also rabbit and lamb!
