Description

Langhe Nebbiolo is sometimes a way for producers of Barolo or Barbaresco to declassify their wines, but increasingly it is made from Nebbiolo grown in the wider Langhe area. In the case of Aldo Conterno, Il Favot is made from declassified vineyards re-planted within the very large Bussia Cru. Bussia Cru is over 300Ha and within it, there are identified special sites; Soprana, Cicala, Colonnello and many more. Il Favot is produced from young vines, up to 15 years of age, from vineyards within the wider Bussia Cru, offering excellent value and in an earlier drinking style from this cult, modern Barolo producer.

Smells

a pretty, floral nose, strawberry, cherry, iodine aromas, and a hint of orange blossom.

Tastes

a complex, juicy red with moderate tannins framing the fruit, enhanced by the richness of the wood. A lovely combination of florals and earthy flavours penetrate throughout, showing a touch of warmth from the season, making a more approachable style. Drinking well now through 2028 with pasta and red meats.
