Corvina is an Italian wine grape variety that is sometimes also referred to as Corvina Veronese or Cruina. Corvina produces light to medium body wines with light crimson coloring. The grapes’ naturally high acidity can make the wine somewhat tart with a slight, bitter almond note. The finish is sometimes marked with sour-cherry notes. In some regions of Valpolicella, producers are using barrel ageing to add more structure and complexity to the wine.
