About Marchesi di Gresy
The Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy is an historical winery of Piedmont with about 45 hectares of vineyards in the hills of the Langhe and Monferrato. Its roots reach back to the 18th century.
The principle seat of the Tenute, or “estates,” is at the Martinenga vineyard in the township of Barbaresco (province of Cuneo). The area is an extraordinary amphitheater of vines from which Marchesi makes three labels of the prestigious Barbaresco DOCG; they are the only Barbaresco wines that can carry the name Martinenga on their label.
Other than Barbaresco, the Tenute produce a vast range of wines, beginning with the most traditional varieties of Piedmont (nebbiolo, dolcetto, barbera, and moscato d’asti), international varieties that have been rooted in Piedmontese viticulture for some time (such as chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), and others that are less commonly seen in Piedmont (cabernet and merlot).
Passion, tradition, but overall respect for nature and the territory: these are the qualities that characterize the products of Marchesi di Grésy, high quality wines made with the objective of expressing the identity of the vineyard in the bottle as faithfully as possible. The wines are always elegant, yet characterized by easy pairing and versatility in consumption. They are adaptable to any number of moments, from a pleasant, everyday glass to the most important celebrations.
About Ludovica Cisa Asinari di Grésy e Casasco – Owner, Tenuta Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy
Ludovica is, with her father and two brothers, owner of Marchesi di Grésy. With vineyards extending for 45 hectares on the hills of Langhe and Monferrato, Marchesi di Grésy is an icon among Piedmontese winemaking, with roots tracing back to the XVIII century. In 1973 her father, Alberto, decided to start bottling all the grapes coming from their estates instead of selling them to the best producers of the area. Today, Marchesi di Grésy’s Martinenga Cru is the only Monopole of the Barbaresco DOCG area.
