Nervi-Conterno Gattinara 2016
Roberto Conterno purchased the Nervi estate in Gattinara in 2018. Though he did not make the wines that were still aging in the cellar at that time, he did have a behind the scenes influence on their creation as a long-time friend of the estate. Roberto Conterno sets the standard in Barolo by making some of the greatest traditionally styled Nebbiolo wines in the region. His Monfortino Riserva and Cascina Francia Barolo wines are considered two of the finest offerings in Piedmont. Since acquiring the historic Nervi estate, Roberto has applied his meticulous technique to the higher elevation Nebbiolo vineyards of Gattinara and is now producing stunningly complex wines that echo the style of his Barolos. Classic Nebbiolo flavors of red cherry, earth, mushrooms, and white pepper with incredible length and structure make this a must have for any Barolo-drinker’s cellar.
