Grape variety: 100% Barbera
Vineyards: A single vineyard Barbera from the Pio Cesare’s "Colombaro" vineyard near the famous Ornato Estate in Serralunga d'Alba. “ Fides “ is the Latin for “trust” and “ faith “. A true act of faith and trust was made by the Pio Family when, instead of Nebbiolo, we planted Barbera in a vineyard, where a great Barolo could have been produced instead.
Vinification: Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Skin contact for about 10 days.
Ageing: Right after the drawing off the wine rests 20 months in medium toasted French oak casks: 80% in barriques and 20% in 20hl casks.
