Quick Overview

100% Nebbiolo. With neither single cru released in this vintage (a decision made some time back by Roberto and Enrico), fruit from all four of their crus has gone into this blend: Molsino, Valferana, Garavoglie and Casacce, ranging from 290-420 metres altitude. After gentle destemming and crushing, a 15-day fermentation/maceration in steel takes place, followed by a little over 3 years ageing in large Slavonian botti. The final stage is an additional 6-12 months in cement vats before releasing to the market. Bright red/cherry fruits, candied orange with hints of licorice and violet florals; textured and with exceptional structure, while the tingling acidity and focused tannins drive through to finish.

Product Description

... Gattinara (Nebbiolo) from the Proverbial Hen's Teeth, from arguably Piemonte's finest and most legendary Wine Maker, Roberto Conterno


100% Nebbiolo. With neither single cru released in this vintage (a decision made some time back by Roberto and Enrico), fruit from all four of their crus has gone into this blend: Molsino, Valferana, Garavoglie and Casacce, ranging from 290-420 metres altitude. After gentle destemming and crushing, a 15-day fermentation/maceration in steel takes place, followed by a little over 3 years ageing in large Slavonian botti. The final stage is an additional 6-12 months in cement vats before releasing to the market. Bright red/cherry fruits, candied orange with hints of licorice and violet florals; textured and with exceptional structure, while the tingling acidity and focused tannins drive through to finish.


Ripe cherries and strawberries cavort on a bed of candied orange, smoky minerals, black licorice, crushed violet petals and a sprinkling of earthy herbs in this elegant, enveloping ’15 Gattinara. Reflecting its benchmark vintage, this mono-varietal Nebbiolo wine seamlessly melds its chewy tannins with its vivid acidity in a beautifully structured, medium-body wine; savory minerals find their match in a floral lift as this wine glides to a resonant finish. Deriving from Nervi-Conterno’s Molsino, Valferana, Garavoglie, and Casacce vineyards with mineral-laden volcanic soils, Nebbiolo grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques; the wine ages for thirty months in botti, resting in bottle before release.
