The name of this beautiful wine inspired by the events subsequent to Frederick II in 1250 when the Guelphs and Ghibellines contrasted fiercely to defend each other, the Pope and the Swabians.

In those years, Manfred, son of Frederick, supported by loyal, went in different cities of Lucania that political uncertainty had declared loyal to the Pope

As he passed Manfred regain consensus and support, but in the city of Rapolla things went differently.
