A fairly interesting article, as linked by WineTerroirist, by BruceSanderson:
on the aftermath of the purchase a yr ago of NerviWnry in Gattinara by Barolo producer, RobertConterno.
After a number of yrs of languishing, Nervi was purchased in 2011 by a group of Norwegian investors (primarily) which included Erling Astrup, a good friend of Conterno's. Primarily thru Erling's efforts, the quality of the Nervi wines has advanced tremendously. Erling still retains 10% ownership and is the main driving force behind Nervi's wines. Conterno is maintaining a go-slow approach and has kept most of the Nervi team in place, though he is expanding the wine cellar.
It should be pointed that Erling is one of several Italian members of NEB and has expressed an interest in attending one of our NEB get-togethers. Hopefully, it will happen someday.
