Tenuta Camaldoli

Piedirosso Campi Flegrei riserva

Protected Designation of Origin

We produce our Piedirosso reserve by carefully selecting grapes from the best exposed rows from our vineyard in Camaldoli. The grapes are fermented and macerated in cherry wood and the wine is aged in chestnut wood. Tenuta Camaldoli is not clarified or filtered, and therefore may contain some sediments on the bottom of the bottle.

Piedirosso grape

Piedirosso grape

Il Piedirosso è un vitigno autoctono campano presente nella regione da tempo immemorabile e con estensioni inferiori solo all'Aglianico. È conosciuto con il nome dialettale "Per’ e palummo" che descrive una caratteristica morfologica del rachide che vede i pedicelli dei chicchi colorati di rosso come quelli di una zampa di colombo.

Il vitigno è molto vigoroso, con maturazione medio-tardiva nei primi 20 giorni di ottobre. Le rese sono nella media o basse, ma costanti. È molto concentrata in zuccheri con acidità media. Presenta grappoli di dimensioni medio-grandi, a forma piramidale e a spargolo. I chicchi sono di media grandezza, sferici, con alte concentrazioni di pruina sulla spessa buccia di colore rosso-violaceo.

Il vitigno si trova bene anche sui terreni calcarei ma in quelli di origine vulcanica della Campania trova il suo ambiente naturale.
