red wine = vino tinto describes the type of wine. If you said vino rojo, it would mean "wine whose colour is red"

Is "tinto" commonly used for anything else except describing red wine? On Linguee, one of the sentences I found with this word is "El pequeño y tinto arándano" which was translated as "The little inky blueberry".
