Canaiolo, also known as Canaiolo Nero, is one of the most noted red wine grape varieties of Central Italy. Grown in the region of Tuscany, as well as Lazio, Marche and Sardegna, it used to be the predominant variety in Chianti wine during the 18th century, long before Sangiovese prevailed.

Today, it is often used to create Chianti, along with Sangiovese and Colorino. Canaiolo adds fruitiness to the wine and softens the tannins of Sangiovese, the same way Merlot is used with Cabernet Sauvignon. It is also an ingredient in other local blends, like Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

Canaiolo dates back to the 14th century under the name "Canajuola". Nowadays, it has many synonyms including Caccione (Nero), Tindillaro and Uva Fosca. In Umbria we meet Canaiolo Bianco, its white berried mutation.

Canaiolo is a wine with moderate to high acidity, which makes an excellent pairing to pasta, red meat, ripe cheeses and game.
