Malabaila di Canale Langhe Favorita '16


Malabaila di Canale Langhe Favorita '16

Malabaila has had a long family affair with Piedmont.  The family has been documented as wine producers since 1362, and Lucrezia Carrega Malabaila is in fact the 65th generation and current face of the winery.  

Malabaila focuses on traditional grapes of the region, with emphasis on white varietals and the aromatic Brachetto varietal, from areas such as Roero, the greater Langhe and Alba.  These expressions tend to be more friendly and fresher.  One of the white grapes in which they work with is Favorita from the Langhe.  If you are familiar with Vermentino or Pigato, this is a great alternative, considering they are relatives, genetically speaking.

Malabaila's Favorita is fruity, but not overtly - peach and apricot, mild tones of almond, with mineral undertones from its sandy, fossilized soils that follow along the Tanaro River, which contribute in brightening up the wine and helping it maintain racy acidity.
