Corvo Rosso 2010

Member Review by ApelsecS:

This is a mix of Nero d'Avola and Nerello mascalese. The second one does not exists on snooth for some reason. Wild cherry and dark red fruits here. The wine is well balanced, very nice and mild but I personally prefer more alcohol, this one is a bit waterish for me...

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

This wine has a very fruity flavor to it, although it has a tendency to be slightly sharp to the tongue and nose at first, it mellows out quite nicely. Overall, I would definitely serve this wine again with the appropriate meal. Nice inexpensive table wine for certain.

Corvo Red is produced primarily from Nero dAvola grapes selected from the 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.

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.
