Ruby red wine with an intense and fruity aroma

Type of grape: 100% Piedirosso

Categories: ,


The ancient red berry vine cultivated in Campania, called “Piedirosso”, has uncertain origins, even though some consider it may correspond to the “Colombina” mentioned by Pliny. Locally it is referred to as “Pér e palummo”, and this name is supposedly derived from the colour that vine shoot turns into just before the harvest period, that is red like a dove’s leg. The “Piedirosso Pompeiano” has a harmonic and full bodied taste, obtained from Piedirosso grapes cultivated on the slopes of the Vesuvius. It has a ruby red colour and an intense and fruity aroma; it has a taste that recalls ripe red fruit and plums, with also a slight hint of tobacco, coffee and spices.

    E’ da molti anni che acquisto il Piedirosso Sannino: vitigno autoctono, grande gusto e ottima persistenza.
    Inoltre, ha un ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo. Consigliatissimo!

    Davvero un ottimo vino. Anche il rapporto qualità-prezzo è molto favorevole
