Here we go. Some wines ripple. Send a feeling into your soul. Like when you’re casually strolling through the art gallery, nonchalant, when a piece catches the corner of your eye and then your full attention, you wind up transfixed, the audiobook playing on your phone long finished after you realise how long you’ve been staring.

Here we go. Some wines ripple. Send a feeling into your soul. Like when you’re casually strolling through the art gallery, nonchalant, when a piece catches the corner of your eye and then your full attention, you wind up transfixed, the audiobook playing on your phone long finished after you realise how long you’ve been staring. Fabio Gea. Funny, enigmatic, wild. Based in Barbaresco, under a hectare in total, he took over the spot from his grandfather, a polycultural plot with over 200 grape varieties that had depressingly fallen into disrepair. He wanted to put it back into shape. Over 18 wines in total, some traditional, some less so, all in psychedelic bottles (Gattinara) that look as though they've been dug up in the wreck of a sunken ship. He makes his own porcelain amphora. On each bottle there is a specific cryptic code that can be used to decrypt the method of production. Every bottle numbered by hand. Everything is special, everything is thought of. Some of the barrels staves were cured in a sauna using volcanic rock. No stave unturned. We could spend the rest of the day charming you but, just drink! Don’t let us tell you.
