Adnams Primitivo Salento, Amanti del Vino, Puglia

The primitivo grape hails from the heel of Italy and was thought to be the parent of what the Americans now call Zinfandel (although we know know it isnt). There are strong similarities in that full brambly flavours, a touch of spice alongside fullness and weight seem to be the hallmarks of these wines. This lively example from the Salento region is a perfect match for the highly flavoured dishes of Italian cuisine.
