Colorino IGT Toscana

2019
Italy
Tuscany

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.
