This unusual example of Corvina Veronese – the Veneto area’s most important grape variety, vinified on its own – is a successful expression of the family’s age-old traditional method of drying the grapes for a brief period. Corte Cariano is ideal with flavourful soups or dishes with mushrooms or truffle, fresh pasta dishes with meat sauces or richly flavoured red meat recipes.
