Gioia del Colle Primitivo Riserva DOC “Vanitoso” 2009 - Coppi

  • Arguably more well known by its alter-ego Zinfandel, Primitivo is a huge, ripe Italian grape which is the pride of the Apulia region in the south of Italy.

    Primitivo is a delightfully brash wine that's very dark, very juicy and very high in alcohol.

    The grape is thought to have originated in Croatia, where it is known as Crljenak (shill-ee-ah-nock). It was then brought to Italy, and on to the United States in the 1800s, where it thrived under the Californian sun.

    Primitivos are very well known for being full-bodied fruit bombs. Much like Californian Zinfandels they have a very high alcohol content on account of the grapes ripening quickly.

    Primitivo is a fantastic BBQ wine. It loves pulled pork, ribs, steaks and anything with a lot of flavor and a mild char to it. Pizza is another excellent choice with this fabulous wine.
