History The vine is very ancient, dating back to Roman times and described in Plinio il Vecchio Naturalis History as a cut grape. It was only from 1985 that the vine began to be purified vinified, while in the assembly the Foxtail manages to extinguish the strong acidity that volcanic soils provide to wine.

Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety Generally the palate is lovable in youth, but after the first year it is approaching the dry. The structure of the body is light, sometimes softer and slightly spicy. Clearly acidic, the Fox's wines were first experimented with wood refinement, then decided for the best steel and left the characteristics of the wine unaltered, unlike the oak that instead tended to cover them without adding improvements.
