"Favorita" is a species of grapevine which produces a white fruit and is traditionally cultivated in the Albese hills, especially on the left bank of the river Tanaro. The grapes are crushed when they are ripe, which is usually in the second or third week of September, and the must is subjected to alcoholic fermentation at constantly low temperatures (17 - 18°C). After several months it is bottled, a process which usually coincides with the beginning of Spring. The wine goes on the market a few weeks later. Langhe Favorita is a wine with a fine and highly individual character. Although it is straw-coloured, this is not overly accentuated. This yellow is enhanced by a subtle green reflection. It has a fragrant, fruity and decisively flowery aroma with a very pleasant hint of rennet apple. It tastes full, dry and delicately acidy.

The producer

There are accurate historical references to this rural company located in Sant'Anna di Monteu Roero. The old register preserved in the historical archives of the municipality of Monteu Roero testifies that in 1670 the son of one deceased 'Audino', Giovanni Domenico Negro, owned a house with an oven, yard, winery and vines in the same area where the "Perdaudin" vineyard and smallholding is situated today. For centuries generations of the same family have developed their wine-making skills here. The Negro family have continued to cultivate their vines with the same enthusiasm and professionalism, harvesting precious bunches of grapes and producing agreeable wines year after year. Roero - the area where the Negro company is situated - is an area rich in factors essential for the production of quality wines. The climate is temperate-cold, with a good temperature range and relatively low humidity compared to nearby areas. The land, formed out of the remains of an ancient sea, is made up of sand (between 20% and 40%), a good percentage of limestone and a little clay, lending the soil a light and permeable structure. The wines that originate here have a pronounced aroma and complex structure - not heavy, but with a precise and unmistakable character. The wineries themselves are situated close to the Riveri holdings in the hamlet of Sant'Anna, and have been carefully equipped with modern technology that works alongside older tried and tested traditions. The result of this marriage between tradition and technology is a very agreeable wine, impeccable from the point of view of quality, rich in distinctive character, with a strong fragrance and complex structure, capable of winning approval both in Italy and on a world-wide scale.
