A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Francesco purchased a small plot in ColliTortonesi & founded his wnry in 2003 w/ his wife Anna. Fausto was his grandfather and a legendary Italian cyclist in the '40-'50 time frame, winning the TourDeFrance several yrs. His focus is on indigenous grapes. Favorita is the Piemontese name for Vermentino. They also make a Barbera that is quite good. A name to keep your eye out for. Multiple USA importers.
