With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Fides offers a noticeable and heightened level of precision, focus and strength. The wine bursts open with dark and luscious fruit that makes a big impact on the senses. Blackberry, summer ripe cherry and black plum all rise to the top of the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine shows thick density and bright acidity. Only 6,000 bottles were made of this oak-aged Barbera.
This red hits all the right notes, with the vibrant structure focusing the violet, black cherry, blackberry and tobacco flavors. This tightens up as it crosses the finish line. Drink now through 2023. 1,333 cases made.
