Colorino

Colorino

Colorino is a black grape variety primarily grown in Tuscany, Italy. It is a teinturier ('dyeing') grape variety, which means that it has both dark skin and dark flesh, resulting in a deeply pigmented wine.

Colorino grapes are known for their small berries and thick skins, which contribute to the wine's intense colour and tannic structure. The grape is typically used in blends with other Tuscan varieties, such as Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Ciliegiolo, to add colour, tannins, and complexity to the wine.

The variety is often used component of some of the region's most famous wines, including Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The grape is also grown in other parts of Italy, with 421 hectares planted according to the 2010 grapevine census.
