This wine is a dry white wine made from grapes favorita 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.
The grapes have a very interesting history. The grape-variety arrived in this area along the old salt ways which used to link the Alba area with the Ligurian coast.
The sandy terrain of the Roero proved to provide ideal conditions for its development, and it came to be used first as a dessert grape and then for making wine.
The work in the vineyards follows the same pattern as for other varieties, with winter pruning, tying, cleaning and cutting of the shoots in summer, and finally the grape-harvest during the second half of September.
After the grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, the must undergoes its alcoholic fermentation in the winery at a constantly low temperature (17-18°C). The wine is then stored in stainless steel, and bottling generally takes place in spring.
