G. CONTERNO Nervi Gattinara 2017

G. CONTERNO WINERY

Founded in 1906, Nervi is the oldest winery in the Gattinara DOCG area. The porphyry and clay rich vineyards cover 28.5 hectares of Nebbiolo vines at the Alpine foothills of Monte Rosa, in steep, south facing slopes. True to the area’s tradition, they prune and harvest by hand and make fine red wine using large oak casks for both fermentation and aging. In 2011 four Norwegian families, joined by their passion for wine and viticulture, bought the estate. The chief oenologist Enrico Fileppo ensures adherence to tradition with 30 years of Nervi winemaking experience and many award winning vintages.

GATTINARA NERVI

Erling Astrup tasted his first Nervi Molsino in 1995 while studying at Bocconi. The austere and elegant Nebbiolo palate stuck with him and in 2011 the dream of owning his own Gattinara vineyard came true. He acquired a majority of Nervi and teamed up with Christopher Moestue who bought 25 per cent. Moestue is already an owner in Cornas in the Rhône Valley and Volnay in Burgundy, as well as an importer of fine wine to Norway.

Today Giacomo Conterno estate is the brand new owner
