  • TASTING NOTE: "In 2017, the Gattinara is a bit richer than it often is - the result of the warm dry year – but its profile is super-classic. Sweet pipe tobacco, mint, dried herbs, licorice, dried cherry and Alpine herbs fill out its ample frame effortlessly. I would give the 2017 a few years in bottle, but it won’t need more than that to start drinking well. In 2017, Roberto Conterno did not bottle his vineyard-designates. Instead, all the best lots went into the straight Gattinara, an overachieving wine that delivers the goods." 94 POINTS - ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Fruit is sourced from the volcanic soils of key vineyards in Gattinara; Casacce, Garavoglie, Molsino and Valferana. The wine is fermented and macerated in steel at controlled temperatures, for 20 to 30 days, followed by 30 months in large format oak.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The Gattinara region was awarded DOC status in 1967, and later upgraded to DOCG in 1990. The soil in Gattinara is composed largely of volcanic gravel – remnants of an extinct super volcano which collapsed 280 million years ago. Nervi is a historic, benchmark Gattinara producer possessing some of the most prized vineyard holdings in all of the appellation. The winery was founded in 1906 by Italo Nervi and is the oldest Cantina in Gattinara, though many of the vineyards had already been in the family dating back as far as 1679. The estate comprises 28.5 hectares of vineyards including their top crus of Molsino and Valferana as well as Garavoglie and Casacce. In 2018 it was accquired by Roberto Conterno, of the famed Barolo producer Giacomo Conterno. Roberto has seen it as a strength to retain existing local contacts and expertise. He has encouraged previous owners the Astrup family and the winemaker Enrico Fileppo – with his experience of 30 plus Gattinara vintages – to remain.
