Once upon a time...

A citizen from Fara Filiorum Petri was singing with his guitars and drums: “eh… oh… ah ah ah ah… eh… oh… ah ah ah ah… Pòpele nostre, assaje furtunate, da chelu ‘Ndonie meraculàte, nu’ te purtème dendr’a lu core, è dducent’anne e arde ancore… è dducent’anne e arde ancore… eh… oh… ah ah ah ah… eh… oh… ah ah ah ah…”.
It is an ancient tradition, a thousand-year narration, that animates the words and gestures of the musician. He was a wandering artist, a storyteller, to whom the entire community, in ancient times, entrusted the millennial collective memory. From the Greeks to the medieval minstrels, from the Provencal troubadours to the real storyteller from Abruzzo, the gap is small. The musician of Fara Filiorum Petri still accompanies his “paesani” devoted to the construction of the Farchie with songs that make re-live places, smells, perfumes, struggles, battles and passions, acts,events of local history, lullabies, crafts, feelings and thoughts of the people live. In his words, tuned with the aid of tools such as the ddu’ bbòtte (accordion), he intensifies the popular traditions of his land so much that he makes them a myth, leaving a cultural heritage of inestimable value.

Name and Origin of Grapes

PASSERINA Terre di Chieti IGP

color WHITE

The Passerina vine name comes from the small size of its berries and from the fact that the sparrows show a particular predilection for this grape, due to a particularly tasty pulp. Widespread in the Marche and Abruzzo regions, it has only recently been re-launched because it was forgotten and replaced by the more productive Trebbiano.

Tasting and Service

At sight it has a straw yellow colour, characterized by delicate olfactory notes, a floral bouquet with notes of white flowers, smoky and hazelnut. On the palate it is citrusy, savory, long, mineral and fresh. It pairs optimally with fish starters, seafood cuisine, white meats and medium-aged cheeses. Optimal temperature 9-11 °C
