Le Sèrole Pallagrello Bianco Terre del Volturno IGT
Campania

Pallagrello is one of the few varietals that has a white and a red species. Cultivated in only 14 townships, Pallagrello was able to survive the phylloxera plague thanks to the volcanic soil of zone, which made it hostile to the invasion of phylloxera. 

Sèrole, near Ruviano, appears on ancient maps of the area - the name relating to the imposing ruins of an old farmhouse that was used as a meeting for local peasants.
