HISTORY, MYTH AND LEGENDS
Some of the wines could tell ancient enchanting tales, due to their remote origins, the traditions and culture in which have the roots. We are in the kingdom of the Myth and of the Legend, enchanting land defined as "diletta patria", the beloved country of Hellenic and Latin civilizations. Goethe told: "Here you remain as astonished among history and nature events." The volcanic activities, short but violent, fed ancient people's fantasy that for this reason there placed la Terra dei Giganti (Giants' land) the fight of Cyclopes and Titans, to symbolize the fire, the divine violence, in a melting pot of belief, cults and mystery creating the name "phlegreios" from ancient Greek language that means burning land.

PHLEGRAEAN FIELDS: PLACE WHERE THE EARTH BURNS
The IV Miglio wines express the Phlegraean Fields millennial history and bring together all the peculiarity of a magic place, ancient and precious. We are in Campania, in a special geographic area in the north of Naples, on the declines of extinct craters, an open air archeological museum; very fertile and sunny ground, mild climate, landscape built up by volcanic reliefs contributing to the land's variety. A sparkling ground: the volcanic events are of special evidence in Pozzuoli' Solfatara; also evocative the Averno's lake, so called due to the ancients' belief that there was the Hell's entrance. Ade, or just Averno. The area is strongly characterized by the particular lands' nature: an irregular succession of low hills, with plots and craters where are hidden flat lands and small lakes. The volcanic nature of the area is also hidden in the place denomination: Phlegraean derive from ancient Greek "phlegraios" that means burning, as full of fire was the activity of the local volcano up to the moment of its destruction. It is just the volcanic nature of the ground to characterize and feed a very ancient wine's culture. The grounds on which vineyards lay are the added value of Phlegraean wine. The volcanic soil is full of dusts, lapillus, pumices and tufaceous stones, all microelements suitable to give to the vineyards unique and exclusive flavourings and tastes, along with the mild climate: the ideal environment for vine growing.
BEYOND PHLEGRAEAN: FIELDS WHERE SUN SHINES
In each Italian areas the wine growing has its ancient history, but only few places may boast, as Campania may, about a so close link with its own origins. Clearly, the ancient Romans when spoke of a "Campania Felix" referred to the refined wines there produced, the emperors' wines, well known, appreciated and world famous. It is not a case if the best antiquity wines as Falerno, Greco, Faustiniano, Caleno, were produced in Campania. From the ancient grape wines described by the ancient writers, as Plinio, with the names of "Vitis Hellenica, Aminea Gemina, Vitis Apiana, Uve Alopeci, Aminea Lanata" come down the "Aglianico, Greco, Fiano, Coda di Volpe, Per'e Palummo, Asprinio, Biancolella, Forastera, Falanghina, and the other native wine grapes grown up in the area. An amphelograpic heritage of high level, a great variety of native grapes that it is hard to find in other areas. The millennial Campania's enological history is the base of the richness of the contemporary ampelograpic estate: recent researches have revealed on the Campania regional ground more than one hundred types of grapes, an huge number not comparable to any other national or international wine area. Campania, apart the enormous variety, has among its features a large quantity of environments with bent for the grapes' growing, each with peculiar distinguishing marks, fit to induce typical aspect of quality of the produced wines. Environment and native grapes: this is the basic binomial for the large success of Campania wines. Grape yards only located in Campania and exclusive areas as the Islands of Capri and Ischia, the Vesuvio slopes, the Irpinian or Sannium hills. Each area selected over the time its own grape yards that by the time have become perfectly fit for the climates and geography of the lands, obtaining a perfect tune with external environment and land.
