Favorita (only 1000 bottles produced this year) is a dry white wine made from grapes grown on their own small plot of land in the Roero.
The golden yellow bunches of grapes produced by the favorita vine are medium-sized, long and cylindrical.
The wine itself is straw-yellow with greenish highlights, a delicate nose showing light fruit, and a dry taste with a slightly bitter finish. It is generally drunk as a “young” wine, within a year of the vintage.
Is delicate and fruity, slightly “flowery”, dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Excellent as an aperitif, it goes very well with fish and white meat. Serve chilled.
