Coda di Volpe Bianca

The white grape variety originates from Italy; the name means "foxtail" after the grape shape. Synonyms are Alopecis, Cianca Rosa, Coada Vulpi, Coda di Volpe de Maddaloni, Coda di Vulpe, Durante, Falerno, Guarnaccia Bianca and Lisica Opasca Bjelaja. The parentage is unknown. According to one hypothesis, it is the descendant of the ancient grape variety Alopecis described by Pliny the Elder (23-79), whose appearance reminded him of the "tail of a fox". However, this common description applies to many varieties. The synonym Falerno also associates an "ancient relationship", namely with the famous Falerno. It was first mentioned in 1592 by the scholar Giovanni Battista della Porta (1535-1615).
