Top 100 Wines of 2019, #36 Rank - Wine Spectator

94pts Wine Spectator

Nervi is the oldest winery in Gattinara. Gattinara is home to some of the best Nebbiolo vineyards in the world. Wine Spectator thought so much of the Nervi-Conterno Gattinara, they put it on their Top 100 Wines of 2019 list, ahead of 63 others on that list... We think you should try it. Veramente. 

Wine Spectator:  Designated Top 100 Wine of 2019, #36 Rank. "Haunting aromas of rose, wild cherry, kirsch, mineral and leather are the hallmarks of this silky, elegant red, which is linear and balanced, extending on the finish with notes of fruit, spice, mineral and tobacco. Very harmonious. Drink now through 2033." Apr 2019

Trade Notes: "Great clarity and precision. Lovely fruit, sour cherry, fine dusty tannins, solid length. A graceful Spanna AKA Nebbiolo with plenty of personality. I can see careful handling during fermentation and maturation would be required. A thinker has been working with this wine and the results are impressive."

Fun Fact from Jancis Robertson:  "In May of 2018, Roberto Conterno, proprietor of the world famous Giacomo Conterno estate in Barolo, acquired a 90% stake in Nervi, the historic Alto Piemonte producer. Conterno is the first Barolista to invest in Alto Piemonte. 75 miles north of Alba, a wealth of Nebbiolo vineyards on some of Italy’s most complex soils is to be had for a fraction of the price currently asked in the Langhe."
