Rondinella is an Italian
red-wine grape variety that most commonly appears in the blended wines of
Valpolicella and Bardolino. Rarely grown outside the Veneto region,
Rondinella's key attribute is its prolific yields. However, this attribute
rarely equates to good quality and, consequently, Rondinella is hardly ever
produced as a varietal wine. Rather, it is used to add herbal flavors to
Corvina-based wines and to flesh out the blend.
