Often considered 'the mad one' in the north of Italy, Fabio Gea never does things by the book. His tiny plot - less than one hectare - hold Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Grignolino. Never wanting to conform to the masses of producers in Barbaresco he does things the way he seems fit, always resulting in incredibly unique and expressive wines that could only come from one place, Fabio's vineyards. 

Mushroom Panda is no exception to this, biodynamically farmed Barbera from his site, this wine is quite ultimately, wild. An untamed bouquet of dark fruits and wild herb garden, this wine evolves fluently in the glass balancing ever so slightly on the middle ground between the rustic, textural, and brooding fruits of old world Barbera, and the silky, densely fruit forward drinkability of the new-wave producers. Simply fascinating what wonders this man can do with grapes, an strong Oak Barrel favourite producer
