Corvina is a thick-skinned grape, ideal for air-drying, which is grown exclusively in the Veneto. It is light in colour and tannins with flavours and aromas of blackberries, violets, red cherries, and herbs. It is thought to be a descendant of both Marzemino and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso and is used mainly in the production of Amarone and Valpolicella wines.
