The producer

Azienda Vitivinicola Nervi-Contino is a distinguished wine estate located in the Gattinara DOCG zone of Piedmont, northern Italy. Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, this region once enjoyed greater acclaim than its renowned neighbors, Barolo and Barbaresco. The wine from Nervi-Contino boasts a delightful aroma of pure red fruit complemented by a touch of salinity. On the palate, the red fruit is enhanced by a hint of pepper and a tangy, savory note. This wine is immediately enjoyable but also has excellent aging potential. The tannic structure is well-integrated, making it a fine example of Nebbiolo and a superb introduction to the wines of Gattinara.

The wine

Four plots, totaling nearly 29 hectares—almost half of the DOCG's total area—are used to produce the three main wines of Nervi-Conterno. The vintage Gattinara is made from grapes harvested from the Casacce, Garavoglie, Molsino, and Valferana plots. This wine undergoes fermentation and maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperatures for 20-30 days, followed by aging for 30 months in large wooden barrels.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
