Corvina

Corvina is an Italian wine grape that is mainly grown in northeast Italy in the region of Veneto. This variety is also known as “Corvina Veronese,” “Cassabria,” or “Cruina”. Corvina is often blended with other varieties to create red wines with soft fruit flavors. Corvina creates light red colored wines with a light almond aroma. The finishing note is recognized with a tart cherry taste. Winemakers in parts of Valpolicella will use barrel aging to give the taste of the wine more depth.  In order to produce fruit, the Corvina vines must be trained so it can produce more fruit. This Italian variety is sometimes confused with Corvione, a red grape variety used to create straw wines. DNA evidence shows that Corvina and Corvione are actually two separate varieties, and Corvina is actually related to the Rondinella grape variety from Venice. The thick skins on this wine grape makes it a candidate for the appassimento method of drying grapes to create wines such as Recioto. This gives the wine a deeper flavor of raisin and dried fruits. Corvina is often blended with other varieties such as Rondinella and the Valpolicella Blend. Corvina is known for its light color and tannins, and is more likely to be paired with other wine grape varieties. Corvina pairs perfectly with barbecue pork, mushroom soup, or a beef quesadilla.
