Irpinia Coda di Volpe 2018
Coda di Volpe Bianco, a full-bodied white wine cultivated throughout Campania, mainly in Avellino and Benevento, and is exclusive to the region. The name of the grape means “Tail of the Fox,” a reference to the long bunches of grapes that have an uncanny likeness to the bushy white tail of a fox.
The variety offers moderate amount of yields, mid to late ripening, high sugar levels and vibrant acidity. They’re full-bodied with moderate acidity, an array of aromas from stone fruit to spice and flavors that may include minerality and a burst of salinity. Thanks to its full body and flavor profile, Coda di Volpe is a delicious choice with pizza, pasta, polenta and seafood such as broiled soft-shell crabs with garlic and breadcrumbs.
