Vineyard & Wine Region Information
Primitivo is the same grape as Zinfandel which is very popular in the US, albeit quite expensive for a good one for which you would reasonably expect to pay upwards of £20. We find Primitivo to be so similar to a good US Zinfandel that it's tricky to tell them apart at a blind tasting.
