Wandering aimlessly in M&S I spotted a couple of wines I’d never heard of, let alone tried, so I added them to my basket, making my trip out for a sandwich lunch an expensive adventure.
Favorita is from the Langhe area of Piedmont in Italy, home to some great reds. This wine was a pale lemon colour with an aroma of fresh pear and lemons. It was dry with a medium high acidity and plenty of citrussy zing balanced by pears and some peachiness. The flavour lingered on well, developing an almost nutty sweetness.
I was pleasantly surprised by this find, I’ll look out for it again. It’s worth noting that M&S have 25% off some wines at the moment, so it’s worth checking back to see when this one is on sale.
