Langhe Favorita DOC Vintage 2019

Tasting Notes

The wine is characterized by a golden yellow colour, an aroma enhancing the scent of the peaches of Canale, citruses and white flowers, such as hawthorn.

At the palate, it shows freshness and youth highlighted by notes of almonds and finish with hints of fresh hay.

Favorita is not a wine with a long life: it expresses its best features in one year.

Ideal as an aperitif or to accompany starters and fish recipes.

Curiosities

Our Favorita is a typical variety of the hills of Roero, still regarded as a niche product, whose organoleptic characteristics are being discovered only today.

Cultivated on our hill named Ca’ di Carli, Favorita offers big grapes with colour shades from straw yellow to gold.

It is a quality very rich in sugar; for this reason, in ancient times it was consumed as table grapes.
