5 friends in the vineyard for a unique white wine that makes a dream come true
Another Coda is queued: Coda di Volpe, an indigenous white grape variety, has long been known. Now here is the Coda di Pecora, which was born in the Terre del Volturno, on the slopes of Monte Maggiore. The wine is called Sheep, but it does not make flocks, it is unique. In the sense that only one company produces it, the Verro (always in the countryside we are), born in 2003. The grapes were found in an old wild vineyard and brought to the University of Portici for recognition (it was mentioned in documents of 1875), then studied in new plants and finally vinified. All thanks to 5 members, friends since high school, motivated by the desire to make quality wines together. Only local grapes: black and white Pallagrello, Casavecchia. “Making a dream come true”, sums up Cesare Avenia.
The oenological hand is by Vincenzo Mercurio. The decision to offer wines on the market “only when they are ready” is wise. Here is the 2012 Sheep in the glass: bright straw, captivating white aromas of flowers and fruits, of aromatic herbs. Fresh and savory sip, pleasant, with vinous elegance. In Milan at the Cantina di Manuela, in Rome from Trimani.
