Cantine Farro

 The wine cellar Farro del Fusaro, in the commune of Bacoli was founded in 1926.  Michele Farro with his inherited family experience and great passion recently set up a program for recovery and increase in value of the wines of the Flegrea area; Piedirosso and Falanghina from Campi Flegrei with Controlled Denomination of Origin (D.O.C.).  A program which is based on the absolute quality of all the production processes starting with the monitoring and selection of soils and grapes and going up to the repositioning of the wines in a picture with historical references in order to offer a product which is ever closer to the tastes and expectations of the wine lover. The Flegrean vines, belonging to the Hellenic aristocracy became notorious in the Roman era and were produced in great quantity. The area of production includes seven communes around Naples known for its history and natural beauty.  The soil being derived from the remains of volcanic eruptions is rich in ashes, pumice, tuff and micro elements which because of their presence determine aromas and tastes in the wines which are absolutely unique.  The volcanic nature of the areas of sediment has preserved the vines from phylloxera (a scourge which raged through Europe in the second half of the 19th century).  The grapes saved in this way are described by oenologists “a piede franco” as being original and not grafted. The annual production of “Le Cigliate” is circa 420 cases.
