The main varietal of Valpolicella, Venice’s star appellation, this grape presents aromas of dark fruit and aromatic herbs. Almost always blended with Rondinella and Molinara, though it is considered to be of superior quality, this grape produces light red wines to be enjoyed quite young, except when it is vinified after the grapes are dried, as is the case for Amarone. Its acidic profile makes Corvina an ideal base for a simple, sharing wine. Having said this, yields are usually kept quite low, meaning that the wine can have a concentration level interesting to avid oenophiles, particularly when the vines are grown in the hills of Venice.
