Molinara is a light-bodied Italian red grape that is used as a minor blending partner in Valpolicella, Bardolino and IGT Veneto wines. On its own, Molinara is fairly nondescript and as a consequence rarely appears as a varietal wine. It is much more commonly used to add its naturally high acidity to other red wines, or to flesh out a particularly rich blend.

Synonyms include: Rossanella, Uva Salata, Vespone.

Food matches for Molinara include:

  • Pasta e fasoi (Verona-style pasta and beans)
  • Chopped salad with thousand island dressing
  • Turkey meatloaf
