Not related to Pallagrello Bianco, this dark-skinned Campanian variety was rediscovered in the 90s by Pepe Mancini. The vineyard was planted in 2005 on an east-facing slope. The wine is fermented in steel then undergoes malolactic in used barriquess for one year followed by another year in bottle.  

The wine is marked by its lovely bitter cherry aromas; wonderful fruit, with a distinct pepper note, high acidity and marked tannins. It is a fresh and ageable red wine. Only 330 cases produced.
