Marchesi di Gresy is one of Piedmont’s top wineries, the Monferrato may not be as traditional as other wines from this region but it is excellent. It is 100% Merlot which is aged in oak for 30 months. Aromatic and spicy on the nose with forest fruits, ripe plum and damson. The complex palate has notes of dark plum and sour cherry, together with ripe tannins, and toasty, cedar, vanilla and balsamic characters - leading to a fine, long and structured finish. Excellent with a simply cooked steak, casseroles, game, rabbit and lamb.
