This wine is going for $7 a bottle locally and I keep restocking because it is such a great wine. This rivals California Zins going for twice the price.

Nose: blackberries, black-currants. Palate: blackberries, black-currants = rich, red sweet fruits. Smooth, tea-like tannins, and some fresh blackberry-like acidity. Decent length, not particularly complex but pleasant.

A- Mano has an attractive translucent cherry color. It’s exactly the color of ripe bing cherries. Aromas of fruit- raspberry and cherry with undercurrents of spice. Although primitivo and zinfandel claim the same heritage, this wine is much more mellow, with less alcohol content than the typical zin. The acids and tannins are tamed and the mouthfeel is soft; the wine is well-balanced. The taste is full of plums and cherries. A subtle sweet smoky oak taste is evident on the smooth and moderately long finish. A good wine for the money. I paid $5.95.

Tasting notes said salami and . . . so it truly is. Plum fruit blends well with that salami meaty pepperiness moving to a liquorice finish. All of which suggests richness but it is acid and tannin-balanced.

Had a glass of A-Mano at a new restaurant in Nordeast Mpls. last night. I wouldn't call it full-bodied (especially compared to big California Zins), but it's very food-friendly and well-balanced with a nice finish. At the price point it would make a great house red ($7.49 Surdyk's sale).

Sipping this next to a Ridge Zin and a bottle of the prisoner really shows the similarities of the grape with the difference of the terroir. Sour berries on the nose with blue and black fruits on the palate with minerals and a bitter yet fresh finish.

This Primitivo is zesty and earthy proudly announcing its rustic Italian countryside heritage. It also shows loads of berry fruit less spice than a Zin earthiness a touch of vanilla complemented with pepper. It has displays balance with soft tannins nice acidity and a finish that adds a counterpoint of Italian burnished leather. Very nice zesty personality and fun.

Wine Tasting NotesA-Mano is a stunning example of a concentrated, elegant, rich, deep, dark purple wine. The raspberries jump out of the glass to herald the aromas to follow, blueberry, tar, leather, anise and cedar. The complexity evolves and the soft, velvety tannins linger on the long, long finish. This is a wine that reveals a new treasure with each sip.

Another project of American Mark Shannan, this well-made 100% Primitivo cuvee from southern Italy is a noteworthy value. Aged five months in a combination of French, American, and Slovenian oak, it offers a deep ruby color as well as a sweet, candied nose of berry fruit, earth, oak, and tar. There are loads of glycerin, sweet, succulent fruit on the attack and mid-palate, and a velvety-textured, seamless finish. Although not complex, it will provide delicious, uncomplicated drinking over the next 1-2 years.

That's the translation... and "a-mano" tastes "handmade." A lovely ripe strawberry aroma, with a rich and balanced texture in the mouth; dry yet not bitter or tannic, with a graceful and charismatic finish.

This is a simple, genuine wine that delivers concentration, power and personality without much effort. Its success is due to the sunny climate conditions of Southern Italy and a healthy selection of fruit. In the mouth, the wine offers both sweetness and crispness.

A great value, this 100% Primitivo aged five months in a combination of French, American, and Slovenian wood, possesses a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of berry fruit, pepper, wood, and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, with loads of fruit and a progressive, modern style, this delicious Italian red will provide enjoyment over the next 1-2 years.
