2012 Il Brigante from Castello di Amorosa is an spin on zin. I mean to say it is phenomenal! Spicy and full flavor. Loads of black cherry and blackberry at first then followed by a tangy (not bitter) blast of perfection in a glass. The spice and vanilla take the tongue hostage and finish it off it a moderately dry oak and earthy ending. My God this is good wine. And affordable! Look out San Antonio winery, I have a new favorite!!!! Castello di Amorosa baby!!!!!!!!!

This is 2013 Boschetti Vineyard - old vine zinfandel by Castello di Amorosa. The color is spot on for a zin. The bouquet is blackberry pie. And Cardamon. The initial palate is pure blackberry and raspberry. Then comes the zing of a great Zinfandel. Spice Spice Spice! These people have it down. It is a light wine with an almost pinot noir ending however. It is not very dry but not sweet either. The ending is fast.

Good value wine under $100, wine experts aren't too fond of these wines, but for a everyday wine lover like Me, I think it's pretty good. Don't thinks it's worth $90 though, in my opinion .

Fruit and berry aroma. Smooth start and finish with multiple different fruits along the way. 2012 vintage "Old Vine Zinfandel" is extremely easy to drink.

Really fun blend of Zinfandel and primativo. Incredible aroma and very flavorful in an Italian way, dryer and not so much fruit. Very food friendly.
