San Leonardo Villa Gresti (Magnum)
Intense ruby red, it has a broad, pervasive nose with lingering notes of tobacco.
We picked up a nice parcel of 2006 Villa Gresti with our last shipment from San Leonardo and are offering at a very attractive price as there has been some bottle variation. This Merlot based cuvée is fully mature and initially quite fragile. Leafy, ferrous, orange peel and tobacco notes around dark forest fruits, a touch pruneaux on the nose. A focussed and lean, savoury palate with marked acidity follows with currants, cacoa nibs, dried cranberry, cedar. This really benefits from an hour or two breathing and is even richer and plusher the following day.
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.
