Winemaking Notes: Tuscan tradition blends this variety with the grapes of Chianti to give the wine a darker color. At Montenidoli, Colorino is fermented by itself. Montenidoli is one of three producers currently bottling this variety on its own. After a long maceration in vat on the skins, it matures for 12 months in barrique and three months in bottle. It is bottled ready to drink.

Tasting Notes: The color is a dark ruby. Juicy on the palate, this is an immediate, eminently approachable young and fun red wine. Try pairing with ham, salami; this is a good companion to a light lunch.
