Winery Note:

SPECIES OF VINE: Nebbiolo, Michet and Lampia varieties. 
VINEYARD: different vineyards in Bussia (Monforte d'Alba). 
HARVEST: manual, with grapes selection in the vineyard. 
TIME OF HARVEST: mid-October. 
VINIFICATION: red, with skin soaking inside stainless steel vats. 
VINIFICATION TIME: the must stays on contact with the skins for 6 to 8 days and it is further drawn off; finally, the alcoholic VINIFICATION gets fully complete. 
VINIFICATION TEMPERATURES: from 26 to 28 degrees centigrade. 
CELLAR REFINING: the new wine, after spending from 5 to 6 months in stainless steel vats and being transferred several times, is poured onto "barriques" (barrels), where it remains for about 18 months and, finally, it will be bottled. 
NOTES: the grapes used to make "The Favot" come from vineyards which have undergone periodical implantations, and so have a maximum age of 15 years. The skin soaking is limited to 6-8 days so to extract few tannins and more colour from the skins themselves, with the result of getting a well-coloured wine with a remarkable softness. The barrels used are 100% made of new wood.
