Primitivo aka Zinfandel: Wine for the Weekend!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We bought this wine purely on the label and the fact that it was priced 2/$12.  (Those of you who live in Southern California, this is available at Bristol Farms).  We took a risk and bought one, figuring that if we did not like it, it could always be part of a sauce.

 

We were happily surprised. This primitivo from Puglia (Southern Italy) was a good as any Zinfandel we have like in the $15-$19 range.  

 

Our Puglia has an attractive bouquet of acidic ripe cherries and plum, with pleasant sweeter notes of cocoa and vanilla. A velvety texture with notes of lush, ripe fruit. This wine offers a robust finish.

 

The Puglia Region or Apulia in Italian forms the Italian heel of the boot.  It is known as Italy's bread basket for its bountiful production of fresh produce.  

The capital  of Puglia is Bari, (where Saint Nicholas is burried).  One of the cities, Lecce is known as the Florence of the South for its rich archeology.  And yes, it is on our list to visit.

 

Happy Friday, Cheers!

Very decorative and bold label Ron and Alexandra! A good Italian wine can be very reasonably priced and sit well on the palette. Have a fantastic weekend!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! I think we lucked out big time.  Puglia is not a region that is known by many.  A

Morning Alexandra.

The only wine I will consume has got to be cold and sweet.

That's a beautiful label, and a GREAT price for a pleasant wine.  It's an example of life being beautiful in its simplicity!

Good morning, Alexandra... this sounds like my kind of wine... and the price is nothing to sneeze at, either.

Thanks for the recommendation, Ron and Alexandra. I am a big Zin fan but enjoy trying other wines, red ones in particular.

They didn't have the zinfandel although they did have a white wine option. I didn't buy it!


Enjoy your day!
