Giacomo Vico‘s winery, set on the beautiful Roero hills close to Canale d’Alba, produces since the 19 Century those good piedmontese wines typical of the area.
It is from this canteen that comes from the good white wine I have tasted: the Favorita D.o.c. 2010.
Favorita is a variety of white grape cultivated in over 90 minicipalities in the province of Cuneo, mainly in the Roero, Langhe and Astigiano’s hilly areas.
Vinified in purity (100% Favorita grapes) it is straw yellow in colour with light green and golden nuances.
The aroma is rich, delicate and aromatic with clear fruity hints (yellow peach and green apple) and floreal (jasmine, wisteria and sage).
The taste is dry with 13 degrees of alcohool, fruity and slightly bitter. It has a very good softness and freshness and presents well balanced levels of acidity and sapidity.
Once you open it you can serve it with appetizers and snacks made of fresh cheese, vegetables, cold cuts, omelettes and fish…enjoying it during an aperitif with friends.
Serve it at a middle temperature of 8-10 degrees.
