Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga 2005
|Brand||Marchesi di Gresy|
Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barbaresco Martinenga is a delicate, feminine wine. This is an especially understated style. While the wine doesn't possess tons of structure and complexity, it compensates for that with terrific harmony and beautifully integrated tannins. An accessible Barbaresco from this vintage, the wine is probably best enjoyed on the young side. The Martinenga bottling is made from the central part of this vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.
Wine EnthusiastThis Barbaresco offers remarkable aromatic intensity and complexity that takes the form of white chocolate, small red berries, cola, road tar and red licorice. Based on the boldness of the nose, you'd expect the mouthfeel to be pulpy and fat. Instead, it is elegantly linear and tightly packed.
Wine SpectatorFresh cherry and berry aromas follow through to a medium body, with silky tannins and a medium finish. A little reserved and tight. Best after 2010. 450 cases made.
