"Haunting aromas of rose, wild cherry, kirsch, mineral and leather..." Wine Spectator
Who is Roberto Conterno and why is the wine world buzzing about Nervi?
Roberto is the owner and winemaker of the legendary Barolo estate Giacomo Conterno. Those Piedmont wines are among the most coveted in Italy. His "Barolo Monfortino" is literally the most sought after Nebbiolo produced and retails for over $1,000 per bottle.
In 2018, Roberto Conterno made a splash in the wine world when he purchased the Nervi Estate, the oldest winery in Gattinara, which is a region in northern Piedmont.
Today's feature is the 2015, the first release of Nervi when Roberto was the winemaker before his purchase.
With the same winemaking intensity and craftsmanship that goes into making his prized Barolos, the 2015 Gattinara offers you an opportunity to enjoy some of the finest Nebbiolo without Roberto's Barolo price tag.
One Sip Will Change You Forever!
No wonder Roberto purchased this estate when he had the chance:  High-toned cherry notes and mouth-watering acidity, the 2015 Nervi Gattinara is gorgeous and layered with notes of cherry, smoke, spice, peach skin and tea leaf; an herbal bouquet reveals the beauty of the vintage.

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

95 / 100

This is the first vintage that Nervi was made by Roberto Conterno of famed Barolo house Giacomo Conterno.  Cherry, smoke, spice, peach skin and tea leaf; an herbal bouquet reveals the beauty of the vintage. Terrific balance between acid and structure. This wine has everything you love about Barolo. Already evolved with five years of bottle age, it is ready to enjoy now but will reward those even more who can be patient over the next five years.

WINE SPECTATOR

94 / 100

"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."
