History Pallagrello Bianco Wine Pallagrello Bianco is a much-loved, yet almost extinct, green-skinned grape variety thought to have originated in Campania, Italy, or possibly ancient Greece. Like its black-skinned sibling, Pallagrello Nero, it was thought to have been wiped out due to phylloxera and powdery mildew. During the following "forgotten era", Pallagrello Bianco was mistaken for Coda di Volpe. However, its true identity was rediscovered in the 1990s by Italian vine grower and former lawyer Peppe Mancini, who has since replanted it and the nero variant. In the 18th Century, when the royal House of Bourbon ruled Naples and Sicily, Pallagrello Bianco became a favorite of King Ferdinand IV. He set aside a place for the grape in his famous Vigna del Ventaglio, or Fan (-shaped) Vineyard, which was reserved only for his favorite vines. Back then, the grape was revered for its ability to make vini buoni e serbevoli (high-quality and long-lasting wines) – a characteristic that is valued once again by modern-day producers.
Ampelographic features The bunch of the pallet stands out especially for the shorter shape, with only one wing. It has small, high-quality juices and a total acidity. It is sufficiently resistant to botrytis, with yield per hectare of about 70/80 quintals.
Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety The wine obtained from the white pallet has hints of apricot, peach and broom. In woody versions, it offers exotic fruit notes, acacia honey, candied fruits, vanilla, toasted almonds.
