Piedirosso

nomen est omen

It is believed that the Greeks brought this rare, ancient red grape variety to the southern Italian region of Campania during antiquity. The name Piedirosso means “redfoot,” and refers to the vine’s red wood. The Roman scholar Pliny the Elder (23-79 CE) even mentions the variety in his encyclopedic work on natural history. He died during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, where this historical variety now grows. The volcanic, ash-containing soil is extremely rich in minerals, and the grapes produce complex, multi-faceted wines.
