Favola, which means fairytale in Italian, is an enchanting wine, with its stunning presentation, tremendous quality of fruit and competitive price, this stylish wine is set to make an indelible impression on the hearts of wine lovers.
Made from Pinot Noir and the indigenous variety Raboso Piave. Raboso Piave is a late ripening variety which produces deeply coloured wines with high acidity and brings a zingy freshness to this blend. The vines are grown in the Treviso province of the Veneto region, where the warm Mediterranean sunshine helps to create the perfect microclimate to produce wines with vibrant, ripe fruit flavours.
Each grape variety was fermented separately. The grapes were gently pressed followed by a brief skin contact to impart the delicate rosé colour. Cool fermentation at carefully controlled temperatures took place in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the purity of fruit. The winemaker carefully blended the wines to produce the cuvée for the second fermentation. This blend is an expression of the different characteristics of each of the varieties, resulting in a balanced blend with a consistent quality, year on year. The secondary fermentation took place in special stainless steel tanks known as the Charmat method where the carbon dioxide naturally produced is retained in the wine, producing the sparkling character.
The ideal apéritif for any celebration or delicious with seafood such as grilled prawns.
