Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba Fides 2015

Size Pack
750 ml
Case of 6


The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Fides is another terrific wine from Pio Cesare. Mocha, plum, black cherry, smoke, licorice and leather, along with a touch of French oak, give the wine its soft contours and voluptuous, racy personality. This is a decidedly extroverted style, but it works. -Antonio Galloni, Jun 2018

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. -Monica Larner, Jun 2017

A solid, muscular style, displaying blackberry, plum, bittersweet chocolate and violet notes. Balanced, with a firm finish, but needs time to show all the facets. Best from 2018 through 2024. 350 cases imported. -Bruce Sanderson, Nov 2017
