Unequaled typical wine, with aromas reminiscent of peach and bitter almond, affirmed all over the world.

It is produced in a very limited area, extremely suited to the cultivation of the vine, which includes eight municipalities, all in the province of Avellino. It is obtained from the grapes of the Greek vine, the Aminea Gemina of which the Latin Georgians speak, imported from Thessaly from the ancient Pelasgi people, before the Christian era. Cato, Varrone, Virgilio and Columella have written about this vine and its prestigious wine, which is one of the greatest expressions of the Italian wine tradition; in particular the “pink stone” is obtained from a careful selection of grapes from the Greco vine and where the production per hectare is lower. The name “pietra rosa” takes its cue from the place of production, ancient center (Fontanarosa) for the processing of stone.
