DOCMontigoliValpolicella
Corvina – is widely grown on the Veneto shore of Lake Garda and the hills of Valpolicella to the north and north-east of Verona. Sometimes known as Corvina Veronese, it is blended with Rondinella and Molinara to produce Valpolicella and Bardolino. It can be a tricky grape to cultivate, as it ripens late and is prone to rot if affected by rains at harvest time. It is a high-yielding grape and quality is very dependent on keeping yields low.

Corvinone – is a red grape variety grown in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Along with Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara, it is one of the key constituents of Valpolicella wines.

Rondinella – is a red wine grape varietal predominantly grown in the Veneto region of Italy – and is an integral grape used in wines such as Bardolino and Valpolicella. It is often blended with the varietals Molinara and Corvina, which in 2005 DNA testing showed that Corvina was a parent varietal to the so-called Venetian grape Rondinella.
