Regions where the grape currently is important: The Veneto.

Type or types of wines the grape produces: This variety is a traditional blending partner in Amarone, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Its already minor role in these wines is shrinking further, however, as quality-minded producers replace it with Corvina and Rondinella.

Molinara on Snooth

  • Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a bright ruby color in the glass, with just the faintest hint of amber along the edges. The nose is quite nice, with earthy notes of cedar, leather and fresh herbs over concentrated fruit notes of ripe plum and raisin. The taste is sublime, with a burst of sweet cherry and anise at the outset, which transitions to some espresso and... Read More

  • Last week, we looked at a group of ubiquitous white wines. All of these wines ... ... 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara from Veneto sells for around $13. It begins with a very aromatic bouquet of red cherry, plum and some herbs. Basically it smells like a delicious fresh fruit salad. The wine tastes fresh and fruity as well. This is a rather sim...

  • Bertani Secco Valpolicella Valpantena Ripasso 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Floral and mineral on the nose with strong aromas of limestone and mineral water, over underlying spice with hints of violets and some dried cherry fruit. Fresher and lighter on entry than one might expect but this quickly gains focus in the mouth with good acids and austere little tannins adding dryness and depth to the palate. The flavors are ...

  • Tedeschi Lucchine Valpolicella Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeously floral on the nose, with a lovely core of crushed blueberry, and wild berry almost black currant aromas. On the palate one finds big acid driven red fruit flavors supported by some nice fine tannins and a bit of minerality all leading to a nice cherry skin finish. Juicy, firm and brightly vivid in the mouth this is all about fresh an... Read More
