The Corvina grape has unclear, although recent origins (the first references are of 1600) that suggest it is a native variety of the Valpolicella region. It owes its name probably to the intense color of the berries, very dark, almost black.

The Corvina grape is spread all over the Verona province, but is also present in Lombardy in the Garda area. Rarely it is vinified alone, even if in recent years, the trend is changing, the grape is part of the grapes allowed in one of the greatest Italian wines, Amarone della Valpolicella, but also the other wines of the Valpolicella and Bardolino appellations.

The Corvina berry is black and of medium size with thick, blue-violet colored skin, covered with abundant bloom. The bunch is medium, cylindrical pyramidal, compact, often equipped with a wing and with a medium, pentagonal and five-lobed leaf.

The Corvina grape adapts to different forms of training and pruning, it is a delicate grape, and produces deep red wine with fruity noses, slightly tannic and rich in acidity.
