Did you know: in the “Gattinara” area in Piemonte, the Nebbiolo grape is known as “Spanna”. This area was granted DOCG status in 1990 and is considered to be one of the best areas to grow Nebbiolo, alongside Barolo and Barbaresco. Better open the wine 2 hours before you drink it.
At the end of the second world war, the Nervi Family are the owners of vineyards in Gattinara, and are dedicated to the production of wine. Elsa Nervi marries Attilio Delsignore, he too producer of a wine then known as “Spanna”.
Their combined properties result in five hectares of luxuriant vineyards: Permolone, Lurghe, Sottomonte, Molsino, Villino.
The outcome is a tablewine of excellent quality, but Attilio is far-sighted and, in spite of the two families’ traditions, decides to work towards producing a vintage wine.
In 1960 he bottles wine under his own name and his ”Nervi-Delsignore” Spanna comes to life.
He then becomes a member of the Gattinara Vineyard Co-operative, protecting the Controlled Denomination of Origin (D.O.C.).
In 1973 Attilio wins a Gold Medal in the Stampa Sera “Concorso Vini Pregiati del Piemonte e della Valle d’Aosta” (Excellent Wines of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta contest) with his 1967 Gattinara D.O.C..
Today the Cantina Delsignore continues this exciting journey with the dedication and tenacity inherited from the founder continuing making award-winning wines as the Gattinara Il Putto.
