Coda di Volpe
Since the end of the nineteenth century, the Troisi family of Azienda Agricola Vadiaperti has championed the wines of Irpinia, a historic vine-growing region in southern Italy.
Winemaker Raffaele Troisi is a vine grower from a generations-long line of passionate family members who dedicated their lives to the fruit of the vine. Raffaele’s great-grandfather Antonio was its vanguard, moving to the United States in the early 1900s to establish a wine importing company focused on sourcing pure wines from Irpinia to sell in New York.
Back home in Montefredane, his son Raffaele was the first Troisi to plant vines, with an eye to local varieties such as Fiano and Coda di Volpe. While Raffaele died young, his wife Elisa kept his vision alive, and over the decades, became one of the region’s most knowledgeable vine growers, a natural talent who could determine the health of her vines or the right time to harvest by sight and touch.
It was Elisa’s son Antonio who took the family farm into the commercial realm, bottling in 1984 the very first single-variety Fiano wine. And Antonio’s son Raffaele—who today runs the family estate in Montefredane—worked side by side with his father in the cantina and the fields for years, before he took the reins himself in 1998.
Since then, his focus as a Troisi has remained true: honor Irpinia’s native grapes, its exceptional soils, and the traditions and knowledge of those before him. And exceptional certainly describes this estate: vineyards are located from 1,200 to 2,100 feet above sea level in the hills of Montefredane, on volcanic “tufo” soils. The mild Mediterranean climate, the cooler temperatures at altitude, and the mineral-rich soils combine for white wines of impeccable balance and finesse.
