Corvina Veronese

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Corba, Corbina, Corgnola, Corniola, Corva, Corvina, Corvina Comune, Corvina Doppia, Corvina Gentile, Corvina Nera, Corvina Nostrana, Corvina Pelosa, Corvina Reale, Corvina Rizza, Corvine Nostrana, Crevatizza, Croetto, Crovina, Cruina and Cruina Zervei de Gatto. It was first mentioned under the name "Corvina" in 1627, and under the now common name "Corvina Veronese" in 1755. It must not be confused with the varieties Corbina, Corva or Corvinone, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses, there is a parent-offspring relationship with the two varieties Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso and Rondinella, and somewhat more distant relationships with the varieties Dindarella, Garganega, Marzemino and Oseleta.
