Corvina is an Italian red wine grape used with several other grapes to create the light red regional wines Bardolino and Valpolicella. The variety also lends itself well to the process of air-drying grapes, used to make the famous Amarone wine. It can be a tricky grape to cultivate, as it ripens late and is prone to rot if affected by rains at harvest time. It is a high-yielding grape and quality is very dependent on keeping yields low.
This is a truly wonderful Amarone, where the richness, texture and depth come to the fore. Full of blackberry and dark cherry aromas, coupled with oak and sweet spice. At 16.98% abv, this is one powerful wine!
