History The Piedirosso vine is of very ancient origins, and is native to the area of ​​Naples. Some believe that it corresponds to the "Colombina" grape quoted by Pliny the old man. The name, in fact, almost certainly derives from the red color that buys the rachis with the maturation of the grape, which remembers precisely the pigeon's foot. Between 800 and 900 the Piedirosso vine spread throughout the Neapolitan, the Avellinese and the Vesuvius and Monte Somma.
