Antica Cascina dei Conti di Roero - Favorita 2018

Item No.: AnticaCascina-Favorita-2018

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.
