The Pavana vine has spread to many areas of the Veneto and Trentino. It is cited by some authors, including Rovasenda, and Molon and Acerbi from the 19th century.
The name of this vine comes from a mispronunciation of a reference to its source, i.e. padovana (Padua).
The berry is black, big, spheroid with blue-black skin. The bunch is medium to large, conical, with one or two wings, medium compact with a pentagonal, five-lobed leaf.
The Pavana vine has late ripening and medium vigor.
The Pavana grape gives a wine of ruby red color, with fruity (berries), slightly vegetal scent. The taste is fruity, slightly bitter and a little sour.
