Meet the perfect summer white: Langhe Favorita by natural wine procuders Poderi Cellario. Favorita is an old indigenous grape variety of the Langa and Roero, which is well suited to thin soils, preferably sandy. Straw-yellow coloured wine, the bouquet is fruity and floral: hay, fresh flowers and banana; on the palate it is fresh and soft, with good balance. Try it as an aperitif, with fresh food, and delicate starters. Fausto the natural wine maker of Poderi Cellario explains that the local weather gives particular freshness and crunchy to the wine. If like me, you’re confused about what a crunchy wine is, it refers to a vibrant acidity.
About this wine: alcohol content is 12.5 %. Made with 100% Favorita. Best drinking temperature is between 08-10C. Contain sulfites.
Fausto and Cinzia Cellario, cultivate 13 hectares of vineyards and some hazelnut groves in the south-western part of the Langhe, Piedmont called Poderi Cellario. They are passionate about forgotten grape varieties and produce natural wines from spontaneous fermentation that come from hand-picked grapes. Fausto says it himself: "We don't want an anonymous wine, but one that reflects the land it comes from and that also has a little bit of us in it. This is why we don't use pesticides or other chemical substances and are as attentive as possible to nature." They have taken it at heart to always keep the soil alive, so they let the grass grow between the rows instead of removing it with herbicides or other chemicals. And instead of artificial fertilisers, they use manure, a natural fertiliser, and periodically plant specific plants such as legumes and grasses to balance the soil. The motto: "we come from the earth and we must respect it".Brand's website
