Gianni Gagliardo, considered the “Father of Favorita”, brings us this gem from Piedmont. Made of 100%
Favorita, a close relative to the Vermantino grape, Fallegro is a bright and vibrant wine that marries perfectly
with shellfish, chicken, light appetizers, and good friends. With a touch of
, notes of pears and green
apples burst from your glass. Cheers!
|Wine maker notes
|Fallegro was born in 1974 and it’s one of the first wines made from Favorita grapes. It’s the Piemonte version of Vermentino grapes, the only one grown far from the sea in a continental climate which gives lot of character and makes it fresh and fragrant. Ideal as an aperitif and easily served with food.
|Today the proprietary vineyards cultivated to Nebbiolo consist of eleven parcels between the Langhe and Roero areas, situated on the two different banks of the Tanaro river. The vineyards in Barolo area are located in the villages of La Morra, Barolo, Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba, while in Roero area are located in the village of Monticello d’Alba.
The special character of the terroir is, accordingly, the dominating factor behind the excellence of the Poderi Gianni Gagliardo wines, particularly their various Barolo offerings. This ample geographical range gives these wines their unique and exceptional personality, which gather and bring out the finest qualities of the Langhe and Roero zones, characterized by the complex geological profile.
