Nervi-Conterno Gattinara, Italy 2017
Nervi is the oldest estate in Gattinara. Through some change of hands in an effort to revitalize the historic estate to its greatness, Roberto Conterno ended up in charge. While acting as consulting winemaker at the property, he developed a connection with the estate that lead him to the full purchase in 2018. Ever since Roberto & his son have been hands on at Nervi, the quality has skyrocketed, giving some Barolo and Barbaresco a run for their money. Whether you are a collector or a wine enthusiast, these wines should be in your cellar, to drink now or hold. Nervi Gattinara is sturdy and pronounced with the beautiful high toned floral notes, plum & crushed fall leaves, making this wine much more than your quintessential Alto Piemonte Nebbiolo.
