Langhe DOC Favorita

Description

In the past this grape was considered more a table grape than a wine grape, but it is a sturdy plant, producing a constantly high output.
It ripens soon after the Arneis, in late September and early October.
This bunch is sparse, of medium size and generally cylindrical with one or two developed wings.

Characteristics

A typical Piedmontese wine obtained from the same named vine, grown on the sandy Langa and Roero hills. Organoleptic characteristics: a pale yellow color with accentuated greenish tinges; fruity bouquet, pleasant and delicate; a dry taste, pleasantly sourish with a light bitter aftertaste. Excellent as an aperitif and with appetizers and fish dishes. It is advised to consume this wine when it is young and at a temperature of 8-10°C.

Tasting temperature: 8°C
Meal coupling: this wine is excellent with both cold and hot appetizers, every type of fish, and crustaceans.
