Righetti. Corvina 'Campo Tordi'
This is Corvina from another angle, the fruit has a bright red cherry character, with crunch and enough weight to take it through all but the heaviest of dishes. (12.5%)
A step outside of the sometime constrictive Valpolicella disciplinare: the Corvina can be taken from anywhere in the Veneto though in reality Righetti only buy from within Valpolicella and this is a good way to raise the profile of this absurdly under-rated grape variety. The style is simple - ripe, hand-picked Corvina fermented and aged in temperature-controlled steel tanks.
