"Out of this world" Nervi-Conterno

by Hugh French | Dec 02, 2020



The 2016 single-vineyard Gattinaras are out of this world.
Antonio Galloni,



Nervi is the oldest surviving winery in Gattinara, established in 1906 when Italo Nervi was able to buy land cheaply in the area after devastating hailstorms the previous year had pushed the region into economic hardship.

Acquired by Barolo master Roberto Conterno in 2018, these Gattinara wines are undoubtedly ones to jump on now! Taking the practices that have been developed over many years at his Serralunga estate and applying them here in Gattinara with fastidious attention to detail, Conterno continues to extract incredible wines from this site.

Volumes of the wines available are again in very short supply and will move very quickly. Order now to avoid missing out.

2017 Gattinara DOCG
Usually $139 - Special Offer $126

The 2017 Gattinara is terrific. It will also give readers something to drink without waiting decades. 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.

2016 Gattinara 'Vigna Molsino' DOCG
750ml Usually $269 - Special Offer $249

Magnum Usually $579 - Special Offer $549
Only 1 Magnum Available

Tasted next to the Valferana, the 2016 Gattinara Vigna Molsino is much more nervous in feel. Iron, dried herbs, sweet dried cherry, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and earthy notes give the Molsino a good deal of aromatic complexity to match its intense, saline-infused minerality. Today, though, the tannins and acids are almost overpowering. Readers will find an old-school, classically austere Gattinara that needs 10-15 years to be at its best. The 2016 is an absolute jewel of a wine, but it should be purchased only by readers with either very good genes are a ton of optimism regarding their own longevity.

2016 Gattinara 'Vigna Valferana' DOCG
750mlUsually $269 - Special Offer $249

Magnum Usually $579 - Special Offer $549
Only 1 Magnum Available

The 2016 Gattinara Vigna Valferana is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from cask. Rich and resonant, the 2016 is so supremely beautiful as it opens up in the glass. It is a wine of real breadth and textural expansiveness. Rose petal, mint, sweet dried cherry, tar, anise and orange peel are some of the nuances that emerge, but the Valferana is a wine to admire for its total sense of balance. In a word: Lights out. Make that two words.
