Has several synonym names including Corvina Veronese and Corvina Gentile. Used with several other grapes to create the light red regional blends known as “Bardolino” and “Valpolicella” that have a mild fruity flavor with hints of almond. The blends include Rondinella, Molinara (and Rossignola for the latter wine). The latter blending wine has been replaced by some producers with the rare, indigenous Dindarella variety, and the Oseleta in order to produce a more traditional version of “Valpolicella”. Mainly grown in the Veneto region of northeast Italy.
