Wine Tip of the Week - Like Red Zinfandel? Try this!

I am a big fan of a good Red Zinfandel, but good examples from places like Napa and Sonoma can get a bit expensive.  If you are a fan of big fruity, peppery Zins there is another option you can try - Primitivo from Italy.

For a bit of wine geek specifics, Primitivo and Zinfandel are both clones of a Croatian grape called Crljenak (I have no clue how to pronounce!).  Primitivo available in the U.S. is largely from the Italian province of Puglia, and is typically priced from $10 - $20 per bottle.

Give Primitivo a try - and let us know any good ones you find out there!
