Well-structured wine, with a soft, long and persistent finish. Brilliant ruby red in color, with a pleasant scent of wild berries. Dry and velvety on the palate, it is characterized by a bitter almond finish
As highlighted in the ‘Nerdy Details, Corvina is the predominant grape in this blend, but did you know ….
- Corvina is prone to sunburn. Accordingly, pergola vine training is commonly used to provide protective shade particularly since the first few buds of the cane don’t fruit
- Corvina is prone to mildew, fungus, and botrytis and accordingly requires sufficient air circulation to mitigate such risk; another reason the pergola is so common as its height helps increase air flow
- Corvina is often blended (e.g. Molinara, Rondinella), and contributes sour red cherry, red plum, violet, and herbal notes plus high acidity, and low to medium tannins to the blend
