Corvina is an Italian wine grape variety that is mainly grown in the Veneto region. It is sometimes also referred to as Corvina Veronese or Cruina, Croina.

Corvina is used with several other grapes to create the light red regional wines Bardolino and Valpolicella that have a mild fruity flavour with hints of almond. These blends include Rondinella, Molinara. It is also used for the production of Amarone and Recioto. In Valpolicella, Corvina generally makes up to 70% of the blend.
