Campania has a strong wine-growing tradition, especially in the flat and hilly areas is produced a quality of grape called "UVA Cornicella", because it presents strongly elongated and curved berries, reminiscent of croissants. The berries are green, of a color that tends to the golden and rusty in the parts more exposed to the sun and their pulp is sweet, very crispy and rich in grape seeds, while the skin is quite consistent.

Thanks to the texture of the skin, the Cornicella is endowed with a remarkable keeping, a characteristic that makes it still today very widespread on the regional market, despite having lost the primacy as a result of the diffusion of more modern crops.
