Primaterra 2007 Puglia Primitivo

Inky-dark opaque purple/red color.

Plum and oak smell.

Plum, prune, black cherry fruit flavors. There's oak, but not solely new oak.

The next day same as it ever was.

Ampelographers have determined that Primitivo is the same grape as Zinfandel, though they are have usually been made into different styles of wine. This bottle is, I'm guessing, aware of California Zin. Not a slavish follower of it, but aware.

Tasty wine, a fair buy for $10.99, I'd buy it again to accompany a simple dinner of pasta and tomato. On reflection, if this is meant as an alternative to basic chianti, maybe it is a bit too expensive.
