Corvina may not be Italy's best-known variety, but it's a local star in the country's Veneto region. It grows there almost exclusively, and is the primary grape for most of the region's red wines. Corvina's success is on display in this week's selection of reds from Veneto's Valpolicella subregion. And at prices under $30, these wines are a wallet-friendly introduction to several local styles.
