The “CINQUE GRANI”, from the latin granum (average weight), were one of the most famous and beautiful copper coins, which weight we re around 31.7 grams and diameter of 36 mm with a bald eagle.The grain was worth 12 horses. Engraved by Ferdinand I (1458-1494), it was the coin of the Kingdom of Naples during the first Neapolitan Republic and reproduced the new crest SPQN (Senatum Popolusque Neapolis) with reference to Masaniello.The barrels of wine were generally unloaded on the pier and were sold for the price of 1 tarì, which is 100 grani. The colour of the coin evokes the aroma of the leather, coffee and spices, symbols of elegance, which we find in the bouquet of a great red wine, the Aglianico.
