undefined, null

The chief variety in Valpolicella and Amarone della Valpolicella of the Veneto region of Italy, Corvina contributes ripe red cherry and blackberry fruit, a touch of tart acidity and valuable tannins to the blend. It is especially well suited to the drying process required to make Amarone. Corvina is also the main grape variety in Bardolino, a light and charming, though not particularly age-worthy, red wine from the southeastern side of Lake Garda, also in Veneto. Key Valpolicella producers may occasionally bottle a single varietal Corvina.

Sommelier Secrets for Corvina
