Sono Montenidoli, Colorino 2015Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
We just love wines like this. Rare, surprising, delicious. Montenidoli is one of the few vintners in Tuscany making 100% Colorino wines. This grape gets it name, unsurprisingly, from its typical role of adding color to Chianti and other Tuscan red blends. In keeping with the character of the winemaker, however, Elisabetta, like her entire family, is not interested in blindly following the trends of the winemakers around her. Working lands once abandoned by winemakers during tumultuous, war-torn decades, the Montenidoli family has reached back to the roots of Tuscan winemaking. This wine is deep and inky in color, as its name suggest, but brings a dry and light fruit flavor palette that is delicious any time of year, even in warmer months. This is deliberate on the part of the vintner, who wanted to create a wine that reflects some of the older traditions of her home, and to let the often stifled voice of the Colorino fruit speak for itself.
