Descendant of Vermentino, the Favorita was brought to the Roero by Ligurian merchants in the 1700s. This rare vine produces a white grape, once sought after only as a table product. After a long and careful experimentation, the Favorita is now able to give us complex and intense white wines.

"Grandfather Tumlìn, who planted the family's first vineyard in 1948, felt a strong affection towards his land. He told of the pride he felt in continuing the tradition of his ancestors. The family's roots in the soil date back to 1837, a precious legacy of ancient wisdom, experience, and art that Tumlin handed down to our parents, to us, and that we now pass to our own children.
