Cantina del Borgo Reale Primitivo del Salento, 1998

Primitvo – The Original Zin!. Or so it is argued. I thought it appropriate to review a Primitivo since I will be at the ZAPP (Zin Producers) tasting this weekend. This wine comes from the town of Salento in the “heel of the boot” of Italy. An area full of great bargains in full-flavored wines if you like em’ ripe. This one has a fragrant nose of raspberry and spice, but not as jammy as it’s American counterparts. The flavors are ripe and smooth, medium-bodied with raspberry, ripe cherry and clove. Perfect with Pizza or Ribs at $9 – CG
