Wine AdvocateI am assured that Colorino is a very difficult grape to work with. It is a late-ripening but also very vigorous variety. If you manage to reduce yields, you are then required to age the wine for extra time to loosen up those astringent tannins. The 2013 Il Colorino di Casanova opens to a smoky veil of charred meat, campfire ash and barbecue spice. If offers the kind of succulent richness that makes you hunger for fire pit grilled meats. This is almost too much of a good thing.
