RATINGS: Recommended — San Francisco Chronicle
«The 2005 Gianni Gagliardo Fallegro from Italy’s Piedmont region is a refreshing, palate-cleansing start to a meal. It’s мейд from the native Favorita grape, considered to be virtually identical to Sardinia’s Vermentino, and as мейд by the Piedmontese, it tastes like a soulful Vinho Verde.»

For centuries this grape has conquered the hearts of Roero farmers, becoming the Favorite Grape, hence the name Favorita. The grape is matched to the Vermintino variety, popular in Liguria and Sardenia. Half way between still and sparkling, this lovely, crisp wine has just a bit of ‘frizzante’ adds just a tingle of effervescence that dances on the tongue. Perfumes of jasmine and honeysuckle. Lovely and refreshing mouthfuls of green apples and sun ripened pears, it is pure pleasure. Reminiscent of springtime with every sip!
