Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

2020 Martinenga

Barbaresco DOCG
Red wine

Vinification on skins: eight/ten days fermentation with floating cap followed by twenty/thirty days maceration with submerged cap; daily pumping over. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in full at a controlled temperature after the alcoholic fermentation. Ageing in French barriques for approximately twelve months and Slavonian oak casks for six more months. Further ageing in the bottle before release.
Colour: Bright garnet red with light orange reflections.
Bouquet: Intense notes of plum and cherry sinuously blend with balsamic nuances of mint, tea leaves, dried flowers and gold-leaf tobacco.
Taste: The balance between the very fine tannic structure and the fresh, menthol reminescent finish, gives depth and elegance to the wine.
Ideal with red meat, white meat richly seasoned and mature cheeses; also pairs well with traditional piedmontese first courses like tajarin or agnolotti del plin.
