The Instacart guide to Corvina products
Corvina is an Italian grape used for red wines. Found almost exclusively in the Veneto region, it is primarily used in Valpolicella, Amarone, and Bardolino wines, which are explored in greater detail below. Corvina grapes ripen late in the season.
Corvina have thick skins that are ideal for air drying. As they dry, the grapes develop sugars and phenols that help concentrate the flavor. Corvina grapes have also been used in barrel-aging.
Corvina wines have a distinctive sour cherry flavor with herbaceous notes. They're typically bright red in color and have high acidity. Corvina wines may fall under one of three Italian wine classifications:
- DOCG (Denominazione di OrigineControllata e Garantita): This classification controls the grape varieties, ripeness, yield limits, winemaking procedures, and bottle or barrel maturation. These wines are subject to professional tastings.
- DOC (Denominazione di OrigineControllata): This classification features about 330 titles, each of which has set laws governing the wine style, grape variety, and viticultural zone.
- IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica): This is the only title winemakers can produce a 100% Corvina wine under. The IGT classification allows far more freedom for winemakers.
