Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape variety traditionally cultivated in the Puglia region of Italy. Genetically, the grape is equivalent to Croatia’s Crljenak Kastelanski or Tribidrag, which eventually made its way to the United States, where it is now called Zinfandel. Primitivo is known for making robust, fruit-driven wines marked by high levels of alcohol (often 14% and higher, thanks to fruit’s naturally high sugar levels), and flavors of dark berries, anise, and black pepper.
