'Moderately saturated medium red. Explosive perfume of red cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and rose petal. Silky, seamless and stuffed with red fruits and flowers; plenty of dimension here. Full, broad and complete Barbaresco, finishing with big but ripe tannins and a sappy, saline, fruity aftertaste. The style of the 2007 vintage clearly provided strong raw material for a producer whose Barbarescos tend to favor perfume over body.' – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 93/100

'The 2007 Barbaresco Martinenga emerges from the glass with a delicate expression of fruit that its essence defines the house style. The 2007 is a wonderfully open, expressive Martinenga laced with ripe red berries, flowers and spices, all of which come together on a weightless frame of notable class. This is a fabulous effort from Marchesi di Gresy.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92/100

'This intense and determined Nebbiolo from the Martinenga cru of Barbaresco delivers enticing aromas of black fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and old spice. The wine is elegant and ethereal with a polished nature to its firm tannins capped by pleasantly piquant freshness on the finish.' – Wine Enthusiast, 92/100

'Broad and chewy, sporting cherry, licorice, tar and spice flavors, this dense red has a savory thread running through it, with a lingering finish. Best from 2015 through 2027.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 91/100

'Barbaresco. Very pale orange ruby. Seems already quite developed, but hugely seductive nose. Palate much less evolved but finish is aromatic and comes in waves.' – Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20

The Martinenga vineyard, regarded as one of Barbaresco’s finest Crus, extending from Asili to Rabaja, is owned solely by Marchesi di Grésy. The family acquired the vineyard in 1797 and it has a rich history including the fact that an ancient Roman temple once stood on the site as well as the Roman Emperor Pertinax being born at Martinenga.
