Langhe Favorita

Home / Our Wines / Teo Costa



Controlled Designation of Origin


Some parts of the Roero area prove particularly suited for the production of rare white wines. After the extraordinary renaissance of the Arneis varietal over the last twenty years, another very special variety is now in the spotlight: the Favorita variety. It is a rare and vigorous grape type, composed of an excellent balance between acidity and an intense floral bouquet. The name “Favorita” probably originates from an old story about the locally famous “Bela Rosin”, a girl of humble origins who made the King Vittorio Emanuele II fall in love with her. Many legends were told and written about her and she still remains today a fascinating character in our region. She seems to have particularly appreciated (favoured) this kind of grapes named “Favorita” after her
