Characteristics

Favorita vine is one of the few typical white grapes from Piemonte. It is very similar to Vermentino grape. Once Favorita was considered a table grape. Then, in the '80s some wineries started to make wine from it, with good results. Wine drinkable when young but also with a good structure, as the vines grow in a solid soil suitable for great Nebbiolo for Barbaresco: complexity and persistency are granted

Technical notes

our philosophy is to limit the cellar winemaking operations in order to preserve as much as possible the grape fruits. The fruit cluster is crushed, pressed, left one night decanting at cold temperature and racked and fermented adding selected yeasts. A small part (10%) is aged in barrique. The end of the process is the blending of the wine, one racking, a light filtering and the wine is ready to be bottled

Tasting sheet

the warm bright yellow shade is index of full ripeness. Primary aromas are strong and little aromatic. It follows olfactory sensations due to the yeasts lysis and ethereal ones as a consequence of the malolactic fermentation. In the mouth the wine has an interesting acidity and elegance that we find again in the aftertaste. The delicate fullness helps to spread the range of feelings and increasing the persistency
