Details

Langhe Favorita Umberto Fracassi 2015, Piemonte white wine, dry, fruity, lovely texture, no oak, classic Italian white. The Favorita variety has large berries which make it a popular table grape in Piemonte. DNA profiling has shown its relation to the Pigato and Vermentino grapes grown over the hill in Liguria and some examples have a similarly saline character sometimes found in those wines. Although loosing ground in Piemonte to Arneis, Favorita still has its devoted producers who like the higher acidity and freshness that it gives you. Umberto's example is delicious, classic pears and citrus fruits with notes of salt and minerals. It drinks beautifully well with some fish or 'Bagna Cauda', the classic garlicky sauce of Piemonte.
