This is the color chosen by Pantone to represent the year 2015.

The color of this new year is inspired by the Italian Marsala wine.
This wine from Sicily, it is a full bodied wine, its color is a warm deep reddish brown.
You can see a glass of real Marsala in my picture, on the right is represented the "Pantone Marsala" color. In the photo I have also added the two previous "colors of the year".
To be honest, I do not think that the color really represents the real natural shade of this wine, that in my opinion is more warm and with golden shades.
What do your think of this color?
This time, it seems that people reaction to the color announcement is not positive.
