Gattinara is a red wine with Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita status produced from Nebbiolo grapes grown in vineyards in the hills in the north of the province of Vercelli, northwest of Novara, and westward toward the Alps with the town of Gattinara near ist center. It is one of a few regions in Italy that have been awarded DOCG status and shares that distinction in Piedmont with the Barolo and Barbaresco regions. Luigi Nervi is one of the best wine producers in Gattinara. It was founded by Luigi Nervi in 1906 and covers 24 hectares of Nebbiolo vines in the Casacce, Garavoglie, Molsino and Valferana vineyards. The Molsino vineyard is one of Piedmont's finest South facing amphitheatres. The Valferana vineyard can be traced back to the year 1242. At the foothills of Monterosa, Europe's second highest mountain protects from northerly winds, ensures sufficient precipitation and provides a steady termic breeze through the vines. Nervi's vinyards benefit from plenty of volcanic gravel and high clay content in the soil

Our recommendation: combine the old wine with a younger one for a perfect degustation.
Degustating an old wine is a complex process, rich of different experiences. That can get really interesting when next to the older wine you degustate the younger one. The ultimate corresponding is to select two vintages with several years of time space, but they come frome the same winemaker. Or contrast two wines from the same land of production, but with a great time space between them. The old and the young one, the bottle that rest for 40 years in a cellar and the new wine that now begin to reach.
