Founded in 1906, Nervi is the oldest winery in the Gattinara DOCG area. The vineyards, rich in volcanic gravel and clay, cover 28.5 hectares of Nebbiolo vines at the alpine foothills of Monte Rosa. In the steep, south facing slopes we prune and harvest by hand with attention to sustainable viticulture. The yield is low and we age the red wines in large oak casks, preserving the elegance of the wines and the signature of the terroir.
Today Norwegian families, joined by their passion for wine and viticulture, own the estate. Erling Astrup tasted his first Nervi Molsino in 1995 while studying at Bocconi in Milan. The austere and elegant Nebbiolo palate stuck with him and in 2011, Kathrine and Erling Astrup acquired the majority of Nervi with the Wicklund and Skjelbred families holding the remaining stake. Chief oenologist Enrico Fileppo ensures adherence to tradition with more than 30 years of Nervi winemaking experience and many award winning vintages.
