Corvo:
Corvo is a celebrated Sicilian wine produced in Casteldaccia, near Palermo. The name derives from a legend that a boistrous crow (“corvo” in Italian) was pestering the vineyard workers. A local monk who was said to have the ability to talk to animals took the crow to a cave where they negotiated an agreement: the crow would stay silent if his symbol would be used for the wine.

Corvo is a celebrated Sicilian wine produced in Casteldaccia, near Palermo. The name derives from a legend that a boistrous crow (“corvo” in Italian) was pestering the vineyard workers. A local monk who was said to have the ability to talk to animals took the crow to a cave where they negotiated an agreement: the crow would stay silent if his symbol would be used for the wine. Hence, the name and the black crow on the label. For many years, Corvo was one of the only table wines imported from Sicily. While that is no longer the case, it is still a popular brand. The signature rosso and bianco blends are expressions of the region’s starring varietals. For rosso: Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese and Pignatello (Perricone). For bianco: Inzolia and Grecanico. The winery also produces other reds, whites and a grappa.  Read less

    A surprisingly delicious wine with a low price. My wife and I received a bottle as a gift and weren't expecting much taste, but we were pleasantly surprised how smooth the wine tasted.

    Label Description: Corvo Red is produced primarily from Nero d'Avola grapes selected from best vines grown in the highest vineyards. The wine is vinified according to the finest winemaking traditions in the most modern winery in Italy. Aged in Slavonian oak casks for one year, the wine is rested further in the bottle to develop its full character. The result is a bright ruby red wine with lovely garnet reflections.

    A bit too oaky for my taste, a bit hot on the tongue. Decent companion to strong flavoured meal. Would buy again: good value for the price.

    The wine is lively ruby-red in color with garnet nuances; the aroma is intense, complex, fruity with scents of morello cherry; it is dry and full to the palate, full-bodied and persistent.

    86 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Everyone recognizes the Corvo brand but few of us are familiar with the three indigenous grapes that make up this popular Sicilian blend: Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese and Pignatello. Together they offer cherry, blueberry, pomegranate and plum with a touch of minerality and soft tannins."Winemakers notes:Colour - lively ruby-red with garnet red highlights. Aroma - intense, complex, fruity, with a scent of morello cherry, airy and pleasant. Flavour - dry, full, pleasantly winy, balanced, full-bodied and persistent.

    Lively ruby-red with garnet red highlights. Intense, complex, fruity, with a scent of morello cherry, airy and pleasant. Dry, full, pleasantly winy, balanced, full-bodied and persistant.



    <p>Produced in Sicily, &nbsp;three indigenous grapes &nbsp;(Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese and Pignatello) are used to make this red wine. Together these grapes result in a wine that has a fruity aroma and &nbsp;a touch of minerality and soft tannins on the palate.&nbsp;</p>
