Wine Maker's Notes

Extremely low yields and a strictest grapes selection. Produced in small quantities. Full body, balance and concentration. Ripe fruit and spicy. Very long life.

Tasting Notes

Fruit for the 2015 Barbera d'Alba Fides comes from the Colombaro vineyard (where Chardonnay is also planted) in Serralunga d'Alba. In fact, these vineyards are legally registered to produced Barolo and the name Fides ("faith") is a nod to the hope and promise placed in the Barbera grape. This is a three-hectare plot that makes some 7,000 bottles per year. Yields are very low. The vines were planted in 1992 and the clone produces smaller berries and clusters. Indeed, the wine's appearance is impenetrable and black as a result. The bouquet is full and generous, and the wine reveals its big bones in terms of mouthfeel.
