In the years after the Second World War, the Nervi family owned vineyards in Gattinara and concentrated on the production of wine. Elsa Nervi married Attilio Delsignore, who at the time also produced a wine called Spanna.
The association of the two characteristics gives rise to five hectares of lush vineyards: Permolone, Lurghe Sottomonte, Molsino, Villino.
The resulting wine is of excellent quality, but Attilio is farsighted and, despite the traditions of the two families, decides to focus on aging the wine. In 1960 he bottled under his own name and his Spanna "Nervi-Delsignore" was born. He then enrolled in the vineyard register of the Gattinara Consortium in order to protect the registered designation of origin. In 1973, thanks to the Gattinara DOC 1967, Attilio won the gold medal in the "Vini Pregiati del Piemonte e della Valle D'Aosta" competition organized by Stampa Sera.
After a decade of flourishing activity, he was forced by health problems to cease wine production. The love of the land and the perseverance of his personality will encourage him to continue to produce grapes in the vineyards that still belong to his offspring. Today, the Cantina Delsignore continues this exciting journey, with the dedication and tenacity her founder left her as a legacy.
