Good news for the many Primitivo fans among you: North American Zinfandel and southern Italian Primitivo are genetically identical, they are the same grape variety. Different terroirs and preferences of the cellar masters can naturally lead to stylistic differences in the bottle.
The best of two worlds
The Chunky Red Double American Oak Zinfandel IGT is an Apulian primitivo with an American name. It was fermented and matured in American oak, giving it a wonderful vanilla character that would not have been possible in French wood. In fact, this red wine goes perfectly with North American ribs and burgers. The African-Asian proboscidean on the label of this “American European” awakens the anticipation of a truly “elephant fantastic” drop.
