Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pretty aromas of red currant and black cherry mingle with black fruits with a touch earthy, cured meat aromas that frame the wild berry flavors and toasty oak on the palate. The wine shows polish with a good balance between acidity and round and ripe flavors. Finishes with moderate, well-integrated tannins. Delicious and supple now, it will continue to improve for several more years to come.

This is one of our favorite reds from the Castle. Great color, great nose, and great taste. We're not experts by any stretch of the imagination but this is without fail a favorite when we serve it to guests. Just a nice wine to relax and enjoy company with.

My husband and I are not wine experts but we know what we love..... this wonderful Il Brigante wine is probaably the most delicious for the money in the valley. I love the feeling of the thickness of it as it is swallowed and the lovely lingering taste. We have purchased several cases and are always happy to open a bottle!!!!!!

We had the opportunity to go and visit and tour Castello di Amorosa with some family and friends. Well worth the trip to see such a fabulous creation . We had and tasted different wines , and we fell in. love with Il Bregante . We also are no wine experts, but can tell and enjoy the aroma,, body and taste , that is is most excellent wine to treat your tast buds to. We brought wine back with us to Ga Best on. Texas and will be ordering more. Also one of my family members even bought a Barrel of Wine, I will be going to my friends house to visit more often !! Salute e Auguri Castello di Amorosa....

We are not wine experts, but know a quality red when we taste one. An amazing blend of solid reds to form a powerful smooth full bodied wine. Friends in Utah (yes, Utah) can't believe this wine. We did the tour & figured out how we could get this great wine back home. No one can believe the bargain price for such a flavorful high quality red!
