About Rondinella

The name Rondinella comes from 'rondine' or 'swallow' because the small birds love to eat it.

Or maybe because of the black color they share.

The Rondinella grape is mainly produced in Veneto region and known for its resistance to diseases, cold and drought, probably because of the hard skin.

Harvested at the end of September, it is sugary and herbaceous.

It is appreciated for the generous yields but lacks in body and taste giving neutral wines. For this reason it is rarely vinified alone.
