Vinous, 96 Points 

"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 are a ton of optimism regarding their own longevity." 

About the Wine: 

"Nervi is the oldest operating winery in Gattinara (still currently producing), comprising 28.5 hectares across some of the regions top crus. Founded in 1906, the winery was purchased last year by Robert Conterno, new excellece to the winery’s three single-vineyard cuvées. ’Molsino’ comes from 25 year old vines, planted 400 meters above sea level. The final wine is aromatic and firm, showing notes of cassis, dark fruit, and spice." 

Alcohol: 14%
