87 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2001
Light gold. Spicy, honeyed aromas of white peach and flowers. Then more tropical in the mouth, with pineapple and mango flavors complemented by light oak spices, flint and stone. Finishes with a suggestion of mineral salts. Coda di Volpe is widely cultivated on the slopes of Mount Vesuvio, where the grapes for this wine come from. "Pompeiano" means "from Pompeii," the Roman city buried in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
