Corvina is the main grape that makes up Valpolicella and the Amarone wines from Italy's Veneto region. The grape owes its name to the dark color of its skins that are black as the feathers of the beautiful corvina or crow.
Nicola Biscardo's intention in creating this wine was to craft a wine capable of revealing all the characteristics of a Valpolicella Superiore in a more friendly and joyful style. Basically, in a world saturated by big opulent wines, his Corvina is a return to the original Valpolicella style: friendly on the palate, easy to drink, always able to steal a smile from anybody that approaches a glass.
Deep ruby-red with violet highlights and a refined, elegant and complex nose that reveals all the characteristic perfumes of a Valpolicella with lots of cherries, plums and elegant spices. On the palate, it is round and structured with very silky tannins and a long persistent finish. Enjoy it with any type of food, from hard cheeses, to roasted chicken, or pork chops. Best served at 60-64℉. (from the vintner)
