Italian Croatina is a red wine grape grown primarily in the Piedmont and Lombardy regions. It’s often used in blends, contributing colour, fruitiness, and tannin. Wines made with Croatina typically feature flavours of red and black fruits such as cherry and blackberry, and sometimes a hint of spice or earth. While not as widely known as some other Italian varieties, Croatina can produce approachable, fruity wines that can be enjoyed young. If you enjoy red wines that are hearty, fruit-forward, and offer a touch of rustic charm, wines featuring Italian Croatina could be an enjoyable choice for you.
