2019 Fabio Gea 'Back Grin' Grignolino

Using Grignolino, although Fabio won't confirm this, from 15 year old vines grown in clay and limestone soil, the name of this wine is literal and in English: "Back Grin". The sickle and rake logo (which Fabio has said is intentionally made to resemble a human backside) has a hand drawn smile on every bottle. The idea is to be playful and creative in a traditional area. The number of the bottle and the total number of bottles are hand written on the paper labels. Drinking like a rosato the Grignolino is dry, bold wih a medium acid line. There are big strawberry, watermelon and cherry notes. 13% abv.

About the maker

Fabio Gea is a funny, crazy and thought provoking Barbaresco winemaker. He farms around four acres making delicious wines from small parcels in Barbaresco around Bricco handed down from his grandfather.

Fabio, who formerly worked as a successful geologist, decided to reprise the family winemaking tradition and bring the vineyards back into shape. All vineyard work is done by hand, with minimal treatments of only copper and sulfur. Some wines are traditional, others definitely outside-the-box. In the cellar apart from experiments in "toilet" (Gea has crafted his own porcelain
amphoras), he uses older barrels of 440 litres and 500 litres, glass and stainless steel. The total production is around 5000 bottles a year of 18 different wines.
