Villa Gresti (named in honour of Marchesi’s ancestor Gemma di Gresti who helped repatriate thousands of Italian prisoners of war from Russia after World War I). An impressive wine for an impressive lady, Villa Gresti is fast closing the gap on San Leonardo and based as it is on a different blend (90% Merlot) from separate vineyards is not a second wine but an alternative expression of the estate’s unique terroir. This leaves many big-name and bigger-price Pomerols in the shade.

"Dried cumin, tobacco, cedar, walnuts and hazelnuts punctuate the glazed blackcurrants and blackberries also on offer. Full-bodied and fleshy on the palate with plenty of generosity and density yet marvellous structure and panache. Drink from 2022." 93/100, James Suckling

"Intense ruby red, it has a broad, pervasive nose with lingering notes of tobacco and intriguing hints of vanilla and cocoa powder. The palate finds a perfect balance of softness and acidity with the sweet, elegantly assertive and velvet smooth tannins that are the hallmark of this variety." San Leonardo
