The Piedirosso is one of the oldest grape varieties of Campania and even gets a mention by Pliny the Elder in his Naturalis Historia. The name Piedirosso derives from the colour and shape of the vine stalk, which, when harvested, becomes reddish reminiscent of a dove's foot. Piedirosso wines tend to be full-bodied, ruby red with soft tannins and good minerality. Flavours range from cherry and plum to underwood and dried herbs.
