Now, for a little wine geek Zinfandel trivia: It was once thought that the Italian vine Primitivo was the parent material of Zinfandel, but eventually Carole Meredith, from University of California at Davis, found the true ancestor: a grape native to Croatia. So Primitivo had to suck it up and stand on its own once again. Primitivo grown on the Salento peninsula, part of the "heel of the boot" that is Puglia, often displays rich fruit, and an earthiness that suggests sun-warmed vines and dry, dusty soils. It is a very evocative quality, and while difficult to put into words, is one of our favorite aspects of southern Italian reds. This one exhibits a very ripe character with a spicy sweet raspberry note showing a touch of white pepper on the long, lightly earthy finish. - Jeff Prather
