Notes

The greek Prince owes its name to the Prince D'Avalos of Montesarchio, hero of the Battle of Pavia, who gave the Spanish domination of Italy at the end of '500. King Charles V gave him a feud that left Naples and arrived in Pescara. He loved to dine with the greek product in Montesarchio, where he had the largest cellar of its huge domains.
