Pavana is a red grape variety native to Italy. It was once widely grown in the Veneto and Trentino regions. Now only a few rows survive around the northwest of Vicenza. It can be used in blends such as Vallagarina and Delle Venezia.

Viticulture: Medium-sized and medium-compact bunches, with medium-large berries. Vigourous; good and reliable productivity; good resistance.
