Colorino IGT Toscana
Colorino is a member of the teinturier grape family, in which both the skins and pulp exude red juice. (see also: Alicante Bouschet, Saperavi, Ancellotta). It is a traditional dance partner w/ Sangiovese, with just a small percent giving a boost to the latter’s notoriously light and unstable color. It is rarely seen released as a varietal wine. Macerations lasted 3 weeks. Aged in cement for 10 months. 1,000 bottles made. The label reads, “Year 1318- Church of Saint Luciae de Tolfis,” dedicated to Saint Lucy.
