Coda di Volpe is a very old grape variety from Campania. Probably of Greek origin, it was present in the Italian peninsula as early as Roman times, as Pliny in his Naturalis Historia (1st century AD) testifies, referring to "caudas vulpium", to indicate the special shape of the bunch, like the tail of a fox.
Healthy and perfectly ripe bunches are placed in boxes in a scattered manner to promote air circulation during the wilting phase. During the month of November, the dried grapes are destemmed and vinified as white wine. No malolactic fermentation.
