Description
 
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. These are historic crus in Gattinara – mentions of Molsino in town records date as far back as 1471 and those of Valferana date back to 1231!

The Nervi family built up the reputation of the estate, running it continually until 1991 when a steel magnate named Germano Bocciolone purchased the estate. Twenty years later, a group of Norwegian investors led by a passionate wine collector, Erling Astrup, purchased the winery. Astrup endeavored to push the level of quality at Nervi and sought out advice from his longtime friend Roberto Conterno. In 2018, the group decided to sell the winery and, wanting to see it fall into good hands, felt it was best to offer it first to Roberto Conterno. While Roberto had not been actively seeking out a new winery, the opportunity to acquire such an historic estate with great vineyard holdings of Nebbiolo was too hard to pass up. Roberto's aim, along with his sons, is to apply the same fastidious attention to detail and quality to the wines of Nervi as he does to those of the Giacomo Conterno estate.

Fruit for the Nebbiolo Rosato is fermented in steel and aged four months on the lees, which leads to a textured and savory wine full of strawberry, white flower, and fresh herb flavors. Nervi is the oldest winery in Gattinara that is still producing. In 2018, Roberto Conterno owner of the Barolo legend Giacomo Conterno bought a 90 stake in it, which should tell you just how good this winery and its prime vineyards in the Gattinara DOCG are. He had been working as a consultant oenologist here and recognised the incredible quality. This ros is made using some grapes from some of Nervis top crus, such as Molsino and Valferana. These are plots that you would expect to be saved for their top reds, making this a very serious rosato.

Luminous pink. Reticent nose of white flowers and herbs, plus a whiplash of red berry juiciness. Round, rich and tactile, with good juicy cut that extends the flavors on the long finish. The bottle carries both the Nervi and Conterno names (Nervi was recently acquired by the Giacomo Conterno estate). Nebbiolo. Vinous 91
