Perhaps I am only accustomed to the California version of Zinfandel. Although, I do LOVE the Layer Cake Primitvo, an Italian offering. Nothing like this one. It was very sharp and antiseptic at first sniff from the glass. The initial taste was the same, and hot with alcohol. Either this was much too young, or something went wrong with the wine. It did improve with fat (a nice sharp cheese), so that tells me there was an abundance tannin, and got past the alcohol taste and detect some earthy fruit, but not much. Powerful, yet not extremely complex in flavors, not long on the finish. Could it improve with a couple of years in the cellar? I'm not certain with the lower alcohol content. This bottle just left more questions than satisfaction. I will not search for this wine.
