Mura Mura Barbaresco DOCG Serragrilli 6pk 2019
Best friends Guido Martinetti and Federico Grom were the founders of the international artisan gelato business, Gelaterie GROM. In 2008 they bought land in Costigliole d’Asti, where initially, the property was almost entirely dedicated to the production of fruit, in particular, apricots, white figs, pears and peaches - but the boundaries of the property have been expanded over the years to a total of 30ha, 10 of which are planted with vines, and a further 4ha in the Barbaresco DOCG and 1ha in Barolo DOCG. As was their vision and philosophy with gelato, their venture in wine is about the finest raw ingredients, authenticity and the highest quality end product. Their focus is on their three cru wines of Barbaresco.

Neive is a wonderful place to grow Nebbiolo, and maybe, it plays second fiddle to Barbaresco, though I’m not sure that’s correct. The stony feel of Neive is so distinctive and good. Very good with Public Enemy “Harder Than You Think”.
Liquorice, crushed rocks, cherry and dried herb, baking spice, sarsaparilla. Tight, stony, juicy red fruit, tobacco, a lick of oak, sure, but down low here, and a finish of stony mineral goodness. Very good. Some polish, but the vineyard is doing it, and having it large. Nice. Very nice.
