Vesuvio's vineyards are found on the slopes of the still-active volcano Mount Vesuvius, east of Naples. For years the area was regarded as incapable of producing any quality wines but, thanks to the influence of the highly regarded winemaker Antonio Mastroberardino, quality is on the up and the wines have taken off in popularity.
Coda di Volpe is a white wine grape used to since ancient times in Campania, southern Italy. It is used to make medium- to full-bodied white wines.
The name Coda di Volpe means "tail of the fox", and was given in reference to the variety's long, pendulous bunches of grapes, which resemble a fox's bushy tail. Coda di Volpe grapes are golden-yellow in color, as is the wine they make.
The grapes are harvested in mid of September with vinification in steel tanks.
