Antica Cascina Langhe Favorita
$51.00 – $185.00 including GST
This grape variety arrived in Piedmont after travelling along the Salt Trail, the road that allowed commercial exchanges of anchovies, oil and wine with the people who lived by the Ligurian Sea. Favorita was once vinified sweet and used during mass. There’s an interesting story behind the name: it is said to have been the favourite wine of the Bela Rusin (Rosa Vercellana), who, in turn, was the favourite of King Vittorio Emanuele II. Straw yellow with greenish highlights. Delicate bouquet of fresh fruit and white summer flowers, notes of jasmine on the nose. Banana, tropical fruit; fresh, full and fairly well structured on the palate.
