The Langhe Favourite of Lodali is an elegant and delicate white wine from the hills of the Roero that presents itself with greenish reflections and on the palate has a dry, savoury flavour. Pale straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. On the nose it is delicate, persistent and elegant. In the mouth it is dry, savoury and aristocratic.
The favourite is a native Piedmontese white grape variety.
In the heart of the Langhe, a World Heritage Site, a land of culture and tradition of wine, Lodali is a reference point in the production, promotion and sale of fine wines. “You need the best grapes” – said Giovanni Lodali in 1939 – “because wine is everywhere here and everyone knows about wine; if you don’ t make wine and you haven’ t made the right choices they go and buy elsewhere”.
The story of this vineyard offers a vision of the tough existence in the Langhe hills. It is the story of Giovanni Lodali, a peasant and the son of peasant, who began to make wine for the customers at his small restaurant in Treiso, the only one existing in what was then a small village.
After the war Giovanni constructed a house and large cellar, this being the period which created the roots and hopes for the Lodali family, linked to Treiso.
