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.

Dark and charry, here's a smoky and concentrated red for a turkey drumstick or pork ribs.

A gorgeous, handmade, gutsy, bistro-styled red made by a young American living in southern Italy, this deep ruby/purple colored 1998 Primativo's smoky, berry-scented nose jumps from the glass. There is substantial fruit, medium body, and fine purity and spice. It is an excellent value.

A juicy, fruity, drink-me Italian red at a grab-me price, delivering lots of chocolate and cherry character in a medium-bodied frame, with soft tannins and a long, fruity finish.

One of the most Zinfandel-like Primitivos we've tried (the grapes are alleged to be identical). Perhaps it's the result of California-trained winemaker Mark Shannon's influence. Bright raspberry fruit is intertwined seamlessly with darker berries and a touch of black tea and herbs. The velvety texture is a special treat.
