Coda di Volpe \CO dah dee VOL pae\
Coda di Volpe translates as ‘Tail of the Fox’, and can be identified by its long bunches of grapes that might be mistaken for a fox’s tail (if you’ve had one too may glasses). Loved by poets and philosophers in the time of Caesar, these slow ripening grapes made their resurgence in Campania during the 1980s.
