This is a blend from across the famed Martinenga vineyard of Marchesi di Gresy near Rabajà. Pale ruby colour, leaning into garnet. Lifted vanillary oak and subtle woodchip smoke compliments the strawberry conserve, aged balsamic, rosewater, dried herbs and orange peel notes. There is a trademark nebbiolo grip on the palate; ripe tannins effortlessly balanced by the weighty fruit and salivating acidity with satisfying richness and lingering flavours. A serious wine that benefits from decanting.
