Pit Primitivo against Zinfandel other for an absolutely stunning celebration of this jammy, juicy tasting grape!
It's an age long argument, whether or not Primitivo and Zinfandel are the same grape. The answer: basically. There are only very slight differences in their genetic makeup, most likely coming from natural and geographical changes. Both are from an ancient indigenous Croation grape. This grape is known as Primitivo in Italy and Zinfandel in the United States, Australia, and other New World wine countries that grow this grape. You may also find Primitivo in New World countries. This simply means that those vines are from Italy, or from the exact clone of the Italian Primitivo.

Castle Rock Lodi Zinfandel 2018 (California, USA) This complex, full-bodied wine has aromas of ripe bing cherry, anise and boysenberry jam.
