Rondinella takes its name from its colour, a mauve to black shade reminiscent of a swallow, ‘rondina’ in Italian. A supplementary varietal along with Molinara and Corvina in Valpolicella wines, Rondinella brings to the blend a light fruity profile, body, and a deeper hue than the Corvina grape could provide on its own. Very productive, this is a reassuring vine for wine makers to grow. Its resistance to fungal disease makes it perfect for making Amarone and Recioto, since the dried grapes have a high concentration and a high potential alcohol content. This varietal is also used for Bardolino wine.
