Molinara


 

History


The abundant presence of the bloom on the berries Mulinari has used the name, meaning "mill". It 's a red grape variety grown in the lowlands of Verona, of which there are news in early 1800, from Pollini (1824) all'Acerbi (1825), by Alberti (1824) until a Rovasenda (1877) and Perez (1900).  It adds acidity to the blends Valpolicella and Bardolino made with Corvina and Rondinella. The wine's high propensity for oxidation, coupled with its low color extract, has caused a decline in favor and plantings among Venetian vineyards.
