Corvina

Corvina is used with several other grapes to create the red regional wines of the Veneto, including Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarome and Recioto. Traditionally it is blended with Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara to which Corvina adds structure as well as cherry and almond aromas. The small berries of Corvina are low in tannins and color extract but have thick skins that are ideal for drying and protecting the grape from rot during the appassimento (dryng) process.

  • Luigi-Righetti-Amarone-della-Valpolicella-Classico

    Luigi Righetti Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2016

    Righetti’s Amarone is produced from selected Corvina (70%), Rondinella (20%) and other indigenous varietals (10%) grown in the hills of the Valpolicella Classico DOC. The finest bunches of ripe grapes are placed in shallow, wood crates and left to dry over a period of 3-5 months. Thereafter, the grapes are pressed, the juice is fermented to dryness, and the wine is aged in large casks of Slavonian oak.

  • Luigi-Righetti-Campo-Tordi-Corvina

    Luigi Righetti Campo Tordi Corvina 2019

    Comprised of 100% Corvina, the primary varietal in wines such as Valpolicella Classico and Amarone della Valpolicella. Unlike these traditional wines, however, Campo Tordi is fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks as opposed to neutral Slavonian oak barrels. The result is a fresher more fruit driven expression of the Corvina grape. Look for notes of bright, red cherry fruit with a subtle bitter almond on the finish. Light tannins, balanced acidity. 12.7% alc

    This is Luigi Righetti’s premium Ripasso, which is a selection of the best Valpolicella which is then macerated for 14 days on the skins from the Amarone. The sugars in the Amarone skins trigger a second fermentation, boosting the alcohol a bit and contributing some some rich, dried fruit flavours to the finished wine. It is then aged in small oak barrels for smoothness and adding notes of vanilla and spice.
