Le Sciare Salento IGT 2011
Primitivo is the Italian variation of Zinfandel, which apparently landed in southern Italy on its way to California. The original variety hails from Croatia. The Le Sciare Primitivo is a great value from Puglia that contains aromas of cassis, blackberries, and jammy fruit. Smooth tannins are combined with concentrated fruit, finishing with light notes of creamy French oak, and a hint of sweetness.
