Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"Since the end of the nineteenth century, the Troisi family has championed the wines of Irpinia, a historic vine-growing area in northern Campania. This ancient region is home to the white grape Fiano, a variety prized in Roman times. The family’s focus on Campania’s rich history of grapes is exceptional; winemaker Raffaele Troisi’s father Antonio was one of the first growers to bottle a single-variety Fiano wine, while Raffaele himself was the first to bottle a single-variety Coda di Volpe. Vadiaperti’s highaltitude vineyards and pure volcanic soils combine for southern Italian white wines of impeccable finesse, freshness and character.
Coda di Volpe is a white grape native to Campania, and its name means “tail of the fox.” All tank made. Aromas of honey, wet stone and herbs. Lively and juicy, with a resinous, honeyed finish."
