Product Description

Piedirosso means red feet, and it seems to refer to the stems which have a reddish colour to them.  Piedirosso is also known as Palombina or Per’e Palummo which means “little dove” and “dove’s foot” in the local dialect because the stem is made of up of three branches that can resemble a bird’s foot.

The grape itself is purported to be of ancient origin and is thought to be the same as the Colombina mentioned by the Roman author Pliny. Piedirosso has a notable predilection for volcanic soils, which abound in Campania, and has always been most intensively cultivated near Naples, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, on the island of Ischia, and in the volcanic plain near the city known as the Phlegrean fields where, according to the legends of the ancient world, Ulysses was first captured by, then blinded and escaped from, the Cyclopean giant known as Polyphemus.
