About the Langhe DOC Favorita
Excellent as an aperitif, the Favorita delle Langhe proves to be an excellent accompaniment to hors d’oeuvres, but it finds its best place in the meal as an accompaniment to fried fish and shellfish.

Favorite, what wine is it?
The Favorita is a rare and original Piedmontese vine whose appearance in the Roero dates back to the times of trade with nearby Liguria. In fact, the Favorita is also called Vermentino or Pigato.
White grape variety grown in the area surrounding the city of Alba, in the Roero and in the Upper Belbo Valley. Areas with medium-textured soils, of a sandy/limestone-siliceous nature, which allow for the production of perfumed and elegant wines.
On the slopes of the Roero hills, in fact, this vine attenuates its foliar vigor at the expense of a sugary enrichment of the bunches which, at the end of ripening, take on a straw yellow color reminiscent of freshly harvested wheat.
