Description: What Mark and Elvezia(winemakers) have to say about A-Mano: "A-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. Prima Mano is only produced in truly extraordinary years when there is a particular vat of Primitivo that has great individuality. In the 2001 vintage there were many such vats, and after three tastings, one small tank of wine was selected. 2001 is the second vintage of Prima Mano (1999 was the first). The wine was matured for seven months in a mixture of 75% French oak, 20% one year old American oak and 5% chestnut, cherry and Slovenian oak, giving the wine added complexity and elegance. Prima Mano 2001 is aromatic on the nose, with pure, concentrated fruit and an intense spice on the palate. It is supported by powerful yet supple tannins and has a long, persistent finish."

A pleasant and fruity red, with nice red berry and mineral character. Medium-bodied, with lots of flavor and a fresh, fruity aftertaste. Drink now. 50,000 cases imported. (JS)
