IRPINIA CODA DI VOLPE DOC

Description
Coda di Volpe Irpinia is a D.O.P. wine with a bright straw yellow color and an intense and fruity flavor. The wine has the characteristic shape of a big bunch of small grapes. Notes of citruses and quince bring a soft and fresh texture on the palate. Because of his delicate aroma, the Coda di Volpe wine matches pleasantly with fish starters and dainty first courses, but it’s combined with meat courses too.
Coda di Volpe is an ancient vine variety with white grapes. It is native to Campania and it is cultivated at the foot of Mount Vesuvio, in the area of Benevento and in Irpinia.The name “Fox Tail” comes from the Latin “Cauda Vulpium”, an expression that associates the shape of the bunch of grapes to a fox tail.
The wine has Roman origins and many scholars inform us of a number of interesting cases of synonymy and homonymy. The first to mention the wine “Coda di Volpe” was Pliny the Elder in his famous “Naturalis Historia”.
