Jaiet - Vini Pedemontis

Favorita is a Piedmontese grape variety of which there are traces in Piedmont since 1600, when it is mentioned in the cellar records of the Counts Roero of Vezza and Guarene.

In those documents, the Favorita is indicated with the name of favurie, testifying how much the vine was particularly appreciated.

Historically, the grape of the Favorita vine derives from Vermentino, which is said to have left Spain to transit through France and then landed in Sardinia, and then also arrived in Liguria and Piedmont, in particular in Roero. Wine that, in the period dominated by the great noble families in Europe, had great success. Due to its nature, sensitive to vine diseases and cold temperatures, it started to be almost abandoned in the last decades.

Today, Favorita is an elegant, expressive niche wine with a good aromatic persistence.
