LANGHE FAVORITA

D.O.C.

Taste notes

Thanks to its lightness the Favorita wine compliments all starters and pasta dishes that are not too heavy; its pairing with fish, pizza or white meat is fantastic. As a result of its freshness, combined with lightness and softness, this wine is also an excellent aperitif. Favorita is the ideal wine when in company and it’s also a perfect “bar wine”. This is a great aperitif to have with friends at the bar. It is also excellent for any type of meal, especially for lunches or light dinners with fish. It is also exceptionally fitting for cooking white meats or, in general, grilled meats. This product should be served ideally at 5 – 6 ° C

Historical notes

Favorita is a white wine of moderate alcohol content and light structure; a wine that did not exist in the past. Its vine, with long and large clusters of rather huge grapes, in fact, was used for the production of edible-grapes. The Favorita grape was not used for making wine, rather it was eaten as fruit. Later, with the advent of new clones and new cultivation and production techniques, some growers thought of trying to vinify it, thus obtaining a very good product. Today the Favorita wine is cultivated mainly in the Langa area and in part in the Roero area and is produced in limited quantities. Roughly 10,000 Ql are produced in an area of over 130 hectares, divided into 48 municipalities

Vinification process

Method

after macerating for about 12 hours inside of the press, the grapes are squeezed at a pressure that doesn’t exceed 1.80 bar. Next is the decantation of the must and alcoholic fermentation begins. Fermenting is carried out with special yeasts at a controlled temperature. For the entire duration of the fermentation, the product is constantly agitated by a stirrer, 2 times a day for 5 minutes, in order to keep the “noble” yeast and grape lees suspended, thus obtaining an increase in body structure
