“Mr. Monfortino”, Conterno, buys Nervi, in Gattinara

“Mr. Monfortino”, Roberto Conterno, at the helm of the prestigious Langhe winery, Giacomo Conterno, has invested in Gattinara, located in Alto Piemonte. The rumors circulating recently have been confirmed as Nervi, one of the historic cellars of the denomination, founded by Luigi Nervi in 1906, counting 27 hectares in the vineyards of Casacce, Garavoglie, Molsino, Ronchi and Valferana (which date back to 1228) has been officially purchased. And so, one of Barolo’s top names (Monfortino di Conterno is one of Italy’s most prestigious wines, expensive and listed in top level international auctions), has officially set foot in a territory that has its origins in Roman times, and where the prince of grapevines, Nebbiolo, takes the name of Spanna. Conterno’s purchase is an investment estimated at around 5 million euros. It follows the one a few years ago in 2015, when the winery purchased 9 hectares in Serralunga d’Alba from Gigi Rosso, of which 3.5 were cultivated vineyards in Nebbiolo da Barolo, Cru Arione, one in Barbera d’Alba and another in Nebbiolo d’Alba, which have been added to the over 15 historic vineyards of the property, all in the Cascina Francia vineyard.
