The vine term Negrara actually identifies the vertical group of Negrare, different from each other and grown mainly in the Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto. The most common type and characteristic is the Negrara trentina, but there is also a Negrara or Negronza, which however is different from the trentina variety and was supposedly used in the past around Verona.
These grapes are grown in the province of Verona, in particular in the Valpolicella and along Lake Garda, from where they have spread limitedly in Lombardy (Mantovani Hills and Garda Bresciano) and Trentino.
The berry is black medium-sized, spheroidal or slightly flattened, with thick and tough skin, covered with abundant bloom, blue-black colored. Its cluster is large, pyramidal elongated with one or two wings, compact. The Negrara variety has medium leaf, pentagonal, almost the entire or lobed.
The Negrara vine is never vinified alone, but always blended with local varieties such as Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. The wine that is obtained is ruby red with violet hues, winy, spicy nose, with hints of green pepper. It is dry and slightly tannic in the mouth, with little body, fruity, quite fine.
