2009 Terredora Coda di Volpe Campania Bianco
Style: White Wine
Grape Type: other white varietal
Region: Other Italy
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2011
Medium straw-gold. Ripe peach, bacon and sweet spices on the captivating nose. Enters the mouth full-bodied, soft and sweet, with flavors similar to the aromas, then turns rather acidic and almost tart on the back half. Finishes with lingering notes of beeswax and peach. This delicate, easygoing wine sees only stainless steel but spends three months on its lees for more textural richness. I'm a big fan of coda di volpe, which I think is a grossly underrated variety and is often much better than the more famous but overrated falanghina; this example is a great way to learn about this little-known but flavorful, charming variety.
