Something About: Serenaro
il Famoso di cesena
The famoso di Cesena is an almost-unknown grape variety that was for many years believed extinct. Two old rows of these vines were re-discovered in the early 2000s. In the early 1900s, it was grown in our area as a table grape; its name, famoso, derived from the dialect words, sfamare, or to relieve of hunger. The mysterious history of this semi-aromatic grape intrigued us. Our famoso di Cesena vineyard faces northeast, towards the Adriatic. It’s a bit capricious in the vineyard and requires a lot of attention, and while the wine is not excessively complex, it prefers lengthy macerations.
Those are the origins of our Serenaro! Come to the winery and discover the new vantage!
