OVERVIEW

Like a bubbly Prosecco? Enjoy your Pinot Grigio? Thanks to you, in the past decade the Veneto region became Italy’s biggest producer of wine. The Veneto stretches across northeastern Italy, from the Alpine border with Austria to the lagoons of Venice. The northern location makes Veneto a great source for grapes producing crisp, white wines, more than two-thirds of the region’s total production.

The Corvina grape is the dominant red variety of Italy’s Veneto region, where it’s used to make bright, fruity Bardolino and velvety, cherry-scented Valpolicella wines.


In contrast to these relatively light-bodied wines, Corvina grapes are also used in the production of muscular Amarone wines. Amarone is made using the appassimento method, in which the grapes are dried for three months or more before being pressed, resulting in a highly concentrated juice that is vinified into dry, high-alcohol wine.
