Corvina produces light medium bodied wines with a light crimson coloring. The grapes naturally high acidity can make the wine somewhat tart with a slight bitter note.
  • Rondinella - Italian wine grape mainly grown in the Veneto region and used also in Valpolicella and Bardolino. The grape has rather neutral flavors but is flavored by growers due to its prolific yields.
and other approved red grape varieties.
