Nervi is a historic, benchmark Gattinara producer possessing some of the most prized vineyard holdings in all of the appellation. The winery was founded in 1906 by Italo Nervi and is the oldest Cantina in Gattinara, though many of the vineyards had already been in the family dating back as far as 1679. Gattinara represents the purest expression of the northern [Piedmont] zones.” The soil in Gattinara is composed largely of volcanic gravel – remnants of an extinct super volcano which collapsed 280 million years ago. This volcanic soil imbues a distinct minerality which sets them apart from the neighboring appellations.
Fruit for the Nebbiolo Rosato is fermented in steel and aged four months on the lees, which leads to a textured and savory wine full of strawberry, white flower, and fresh herb flavors.
