Corvina

Corvina is an Italian variety grown predominantly in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Corvina is blended with several other grapes to create the classic wines from this region - Bardolino and Valpolicella, plus Amarone and Recioto. When vinified fresh (ie not dried), it usually produces medium bodied wines with a light crimson colouring, sour cherry notes and a classic slight bitter cherry and almond twist on the finish. The small berries of Corvina are low in tannins and colour extract but have thick skins that are ideal for drying and protecting the grape from rot (for Amarone and Recioto). Ripasso wines are made from corvina made using a traditional Veronese practice Traditionally, the young wine was re-fermented on the skins of the Amarone grapes once they had finished fermenting in March. The new, more expensive approach is to ferment the young wine together with dried grapes in the January following the vintage, giving the wine more body and depth. This blend of modern and traditional winemaking produces a wine with a combination of freshness, structure and depth that is fairly rare among Ripasso wines. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for just over a year in a mixture of large oak and small, French oak barrels prior to bottling.
