Molinara

Content in the supporting role

Do you know the whitish film that forms on ripe damson plums? Nature has adapted it to protect the fruit from drying out. The same phenomenon is observed with Molinara grapes. At the time of harvest, the red berries appear as though dusted with flour. This is how the variety gets its name: from the Italian “mulino” or mill. But the Molinara rarely shows up on the wine label. The grape is the smallest component of the Amarone and Recioto blends, the specialties of the northern Italian Valpolicella. It also mixes discretely into Bardolino, a dry red from Lake Garda.
