Corochinato Aperitivo Wine, or simply Corochinato, is a vermouth-type flavored white wine originating in Genoa, a local version of Piedmontese Barolo Chinato, produced and distributed by the Vini Allara di Pra ‘company . The name itself indicates the origins in the town of Coronata (coro-chinato), from whose hills came the white wine which was the main component of the recipe of 1886. Locally it is also known as Asinello, a name derived from the label of the bottle which shows a drawing of the animal accompanied by the popular figure of Paciugo, protagonist of an 11th century legend set near the Sanctuary of Coronata , and is widespread as aperitif, smooth and accompanied by a slice of lemon.
