Each of the names of the Varvaglione 1921 labels has a reference to the family or to the land. The name "PAPALE" is a tribute to the territory and its history. In the DOP area of Primitivo where the company is located, there is a district used for the cultivation of Primitivo di Manduria and its name is Contrada Papale.
From the carefully harvested grapes in this area, "PAPALE" wines are born, the most historic and representative labels of Varvaglione 1921. In turn, this land takes its name from the most recent of the three Apulian popes elected so far: Pietro Francesco Vincenzo Maria Orsini (1649-1730), named Pope Benedict XIII on July 4, 1724. In fact, at that time he used that same plot of land to produce a Primitivo wine for himself. Even after his election, he wanted to maintain the local winemaking tradition, which has been handed down to the present day and which today is symbolized by the "PAPALE" wines."
