The Casavecchia grape is mysterious and somehow magic. We know almost nothing of its origins, except the legend of an old plant, which probably survived the terrible mildew and phylloxera epidemics. That plant – found in the remains of an "ortus conclusus" nearby the ancient Via Latina connecting Capua to Alife – gave rise to all the others.

The place where it was found was an old house, hence the name Casavecchia. It survived only in small farming productions, but it was rediscovered by Peppe Mancini in the early 90’s.
