Zinfandel is a red variety that was introduced to California in the 1850s, and since then it has been the most characteristic grape of the Californian vineyards. It is also called "Zin" and it is used to make wines like the French Beaujolais, as well as wines for aging that are complex and which have a strong personality. In Italy, it also called Morellone, and it is usually used for dark wines which are rich in alcohol. It is also found in South Africa and Australia, though it hasn't spread so much there.
