Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% Primitivo (Zinfandel's ancestor) from Puglia. A. Mano (meaning "made by hand") is made from 70-100 year-old, hand-cultivated, low-yielding vines.

This is a fruit-packed, food-friendly, modern wine, an excellent value and a great alternative to American Zinfandel. It pairs exceedingly well with a variety of dishes – grilled meats, rich pastas, spicy foods and barbecue.

This wine has a Good nose, but not overpowering of alcohol smell, nice dark color. Nice raspberry aroma with tasting notes of anise and red licorice, leather, blueberry and clove on the nose. Velvety tannins that linger but are not harsh. New subtle tastes with each sip of various red fruit and spice aromas. This makes a great wine to bring to a host to share at your next invited dinner party. One that is reasonably priced and delivers well.
