CORVINA is the main grape for the Valpolicella and the Amarone wines. It owes its name to the dark color of its skins, that are black as the feathers of a beautiful CROW! Poetically in Verona (the romantic city of Romeo and Juliette) we say that Valpolicella is the valley that “flies”, because every grape variety carries the name of a bird!!!
Creating the CORVINA di Verona was for me a very fun project. My intention was to bring to the table of my friends a wine capable to reveal all the characteristics of a Valpolicella Superiore in a more friendly and joyful style.
Basically, in a world saturated by big opulent wines, always voted towards the false concept that “the bigger is the better”, my Corvina wants to resume the original Valpolicella style.
A wine friendly on the palate, easy to drink, always capable to steal a smile from anybody that approaches a glass. Fun to drink on its own yet perfect with any type of food, it pleases talkative and noisy crowds as well as refined and solitary palates.
Best served at 60°-64° F.
