Rosso Maniero

 

 

Among the IGT wines (typical geographical indication), Fattoria Casaloste in some vintages bottles the Rosso Maniero. The name is the homage that Giovanni B. D'Orsi wanted to do at the ancient military school of Naples "Nunziatella" who saw him as a student from 1974 to 1978. This wine (mainly composed of Sangiovese grapes and a blend of other corporate grape varieties red), expresses all the youthful and youthful spirit but at the same time rigorous and respectful of traditions, as well as the School that for over 200 years resides in Pizzofalcone, in the heart of Naples. This Military School, commissioned by the Borboni of Naples, was founded in 1787 by General Giuseppe Parisi with the aim of forming the ruling class and the future officers of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. His motto "Prepare for life and weapons" embodies the sacrifice and willingness of groups of students whose stories have contributed to the luster and development of our country: Italy.
