    Langhe DOC Favorita 2022
  • Together with Arneis, the Favorita grape constitutes the white-grape ampelographic base of the Roero. Favorita by name... and in fact, since over the centuries it has won the sympathy of local winegrowers for its good yield and ability to adapt to different conditions. A close relative of Vermentino, of which it is considered 'identical', it probably has Ligurian origins. But it is in Piedmont, particularly in the Roero area, where it has been its land of choice since as far back as 1700. Here it succeeds in giving excellent results, producing wines of great intensity and vivacity. Just like this Langhe DOC, proposed by Cantina Maccagno, 100% Favorita, fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks and aged for a few months, again in steel, before bottling. In the glass it has a beautiful pale straw yellow colour, with fruity hints and floral notes. In the mouth, it stands out for its fine minerality and slightly almondy finish. A simple (not banal) and fresh wine, this Favorita proves to be a perfect choice to accompany aperitifs. Also excellent with fish starters and fresh cheeses.

    Piedmontese by origin, Livio and Corrado Maccagno run the small winery in Canale, the beating heart of the Roero, with passion. Recently refurbished, the Maccagno winery processes grapes each year from the approximately 12 hectares of estate vineyards, mostly cultivated on the San Michele hill, the most prestigious location in the village. In spite of its small size, the winery boasts an outstanding production that includes some of the region's most prestigious wines, including Arneis, Favorita, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Roero. The concepts of 'Sustainability' and 'Tradition' are intrinsic values of the Maccagno winery. In every operation, in fact, the utmost attention is paid to the environment, in order to protect a landscape that is the very basis of the quality of what is produced.
