About the Winery:
Nervi is the oldest officially-recognized winery in the Gattinara DOCG. It was founded by Luigi Nervi in 1906 and includes 24 hectares of Nebbiolo vines in the Casacce, Garavoglie, Molsino and Valferana vineyards. The Molsino vineyard is one of Piedmont's finest South facing amphitheaters. The Valferana vineyard can be traced back to 1242 as Valferane in Gattinara´s municipal deeds.

In recent years, Nervi has made three Gattinara cuvées—the two grands crus, Molsino and Valferana, and a blend including fruit from these two, plus grapes from the excellent crus of Garavoglie and Cassace. In addition, a crisp, fruit-driven rosato named Rosa is produced, composed of Nebbiolo augmented with Uva Rara sourced from the four Gattinara vineyards.

Made by strictly old-school methods, including lengthy fermentations and three to four years aging in neutral Slovenian oak botti, the Nervi Gattinaras have consistently been among the great Nebbiolos of the Alto Piemonte.

Ratings & Reviews

96+ Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2019 Gattinara Valferrana is a dark, potent wine. It deftly marries fruit intensity with elegance, with deep notes of lavender, spice, menthol and crushed rocks. Time in the glass is works wonders here. If anything, I may have underestimated this last year!" - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2024)
