Pio Cesare Fides Barbera d'Alba 2013
Perhaps the greatest Fides ever made. So much depth and richness. Full and layered with velvety tannins. Long and intense. Mineral, stone and peach-pit character. A single-vineyard Barbera with tiny yields and small production. Goes on for minutes. Don't miss this.
The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Fides emerges from a small vineyard in Serralunga. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice abound. Dark, fleshy and quite primary, the Fides possesses notable purity of fruit and terrific overall balance. The 2013 was done mostly in cask, with a brief passage of 6 months in French oak barrels.
At Pio Cesare, there has always been a conviction that great wine can come only from the finest grapes and the winery's output has always been limited through adherence to the highest standards. Pio Cesare limits its production by using only the most mature and healthy grapes. The ripening of the grapes is carefully monitored and the harvest is rigidly controlled with each grape selected by hand.
Today, the estate is managed by Pio Boffa, great-grandson of Pio Cesare. Under his stewardship, the wines of Pio Cesare have become famous throughout the world. Great strides have been made in quality, and single vineyard offerings have dazzled the wine press.
