Conte di Campiano Primitivo
Conte di Campiano, a producer that specializes in southern Italian wines, makes this delicious Primitivo from Puglia, a.k.a. "the Heel of the Boot!" It is full-bodied, with intense flavors of blackberry, raspberry jam, cherry liqueur, and licorice that lead into a long, warming finish with leathery tannins and hints of chocolate. Primitivo is genetically identical to Zinfandel, and bold Puglian Primitivos like this one make for fantastic Old World alternatives to our beloved, BBQ-friendly Lodi Zinfandels!
