The Il Famoso grape is (ironically) rather rare. There are only around 12 hectares of the vine were known about in Emilia-Romagna, and another four in the Marches, planted by Bruscia. Stylistically the wine has similarities to Greco di Tufo and Viognier, although not as floral.

Press Note:

DECANTER TOP 25 UNDER £20, May 2016: "Forget Pinot Grigio - the rare ancient grape Famoso seems to be making a comeback. It's not surprising when it offers so much: spring blossom, apricot and spice in the glass. It is aromatic - think Viognier - but slightly more restrained, with good texture and weight lifted by a spine of acidity. 90 points"
