91 Wine Enthusiast: "Intense aromas suggest violet, rose, perfumed berry, leather and spice, with balsamic notes. The focused palate delivers sour cherry, crushed raspberry, leather, mineral and white pepper alongside polished tannins. It's balanced with nice depth. Drink 2016 - 2028. -KO"

90 Wine Spectator: "Chewy, loaded with sweet cherry and strawberry flavors and displaying licorice and mineral accents. A balanced version that leaves a firm, mouthwatering impression and a minerally aftertaste. Drink now through 2023. 1,830 cases made." Reviewed 2015

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.

Nestled in the foothills of Monterosa - Europe's second highest mountain - the estate is protected from northerly winds, ensuring sufficient precipitation and a steady yet warming breeze through the vines. With plenty of volcanic gravel and high clay content in the soil, Nervi's vineyards are unique in an Italian oenology. More than 100 years of experience making Gattinara wine at Nervi has taught them that only through long-term aging do we manage to transform Gattinara's high level of tannins and acidity into a well-balanced wine. As a result, in the cellars of Nervi they typically exceed the formal DOCG aging requirements by a year or two before releasing their wines to market. The Gattinara DOCG minimum aging requirement is three years of which two in wood. The Gattinara DOCG Riserva and single-vineyard minimum aging requirement is four years of which three in wood. Hence Luigi Nervi's motto: Nectar in tempore, meaning that patient aging in Nervi’s cellars will transform our Nebbiolo grapes into the prized elixir that made Roman gods immortal." - Importer
