2016 Nervi-Conterno "Vigna Molsino" Gattinara

SKU #1551877 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Tasted next to the Valferana, the 2016 Gattinara Vigna Molsino is much more nervous in feel. Iron, dried herbs, sweet dried cherry, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and earthy notes give the Molsino a good deal of aromatic complexity to match its intense, saline-infused minerality. Today, though, the tannins and acids are almost overpowering. Readers will find an old-school, classically austere Gattinara that needs 10-15 years to be at its best. The 2016 is an absolute jewel of a wine, but it should be purchased only by readers with either very good genes or a ton of optimism regarding their own longevity. (AG) 96+ Inner quote mark (9/2020)

Outer quote mark 2018 is the first vintage completely handled by Roberto Conterno at Nervi winery following the acquisition of the estate. It's also the first vintage with his son Gabriele and the first to feature the new label. It will be released this October. The vintage was fresh after the dry 2017 and 2016 vintages, 'better than in Langhe,' said Roberto Conterno, 'but we did a severe green harvest, cutting 50 to 60% of the clusters.' Molsino vineyard at 400 metres is windy and sunny. Bright ruby in the glass, this preview is restrained, with citrus, rose bud, watermelon and tar aromas followed by darker fruit flavours such as dried cherry. A full-bodied and tight-knit structure between fruit and crisp acidity is supported by the broad, dense palate, with firm yet ripe, crunchy tannins on the finish. Overall it's marked by an amazing long, savoury character. (AF) Inner quote mark (6/2021)
