94 POINTS ROBERT PARKER:
he 2004 Barbaresco Camp Gros Martinenga is a much larger-scaled wine than the Gaiun. This fresh, vibrant Barbaresco explodes from the glass with a gorgeous array of macerated dark cherries, spices, menthol, pine, minerals and toasted oak. The wine reveals superb depth and clarity, with awesome finesse. This is the finest wine I can recall tasting here in many a year. Camp Gros is made from a parcel adjacent to Rabaja. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
The pride of our house, Camp Gros, has been produced from 1978 and only in the best vintages. It is made from a special selection of grapes coming from a small part of the Martinenga vineyard near RabajÃ . This site offers the very best in terms of terrain, exposure and micro climate: factors of great importance that are transferred into this wine, giving us a product that takes on all the characteristics of a great Barbaresco with the greatest level of harmony. A wine with great potential for aging, is particularly well suited to wild game, or other important main courses as well as aged cheeses.
