Primitivo is said be related to the Zinfandel grape which many old Italian immigrants planted in Northern California in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Tratturi is the word for the ancient drovers trails in the countryside of Puglia that shepherds used in the old days to bring their flocks of sheep and other animals down from the mountains in autumn.

Tratturi"Tratturi is the word for the ancient drovers trails in the countryside of Puglia that shepherds used in the old days to bring their flocks of sheep and other animals down from the mountains in autumn. This countryside of Puglia, specifically the subzone of Salento, is the source of this bold, spicy, and delicious Primitivo. Primitivo is said be related to the Zinfandel grape which many old Italian immigrants planted in Northern California in the late 19th and early 20th century. The Tratturi label was inspired by the designs of Italy of this era. The background of the label is made up of Trulli houses, which dot the countryside in Puglia. The Tratturi Primitivo, made for us by the Botter winery, was aged entirely in tank. It's round, spicy profile is a perfect match for pasta, pizza, or anything off the BBQ."

Christopher

This is my favorite bottle of wine

"I first bought this as a cooking wine not expecting much. I used the julia child method of cooking- a little wine for the recipe, a little wine for the cook. That first sip had me hooked.It's the perfect swiss army knife of wines. Great for parties, great for dinners, great for hanging out with friends. Very medium in attributes, not too sweet, not too dry, with a fun spiciness ending in a rich taste of raisins. And at this price? Pff I'm surprised I haven't bought out the stock."

Delicious

"A very drinkable, good value, red wine. I love red wine and this has become one of my favorites for everyday enjoyment."

Original Zin

"A nice, relatively light fruit, Zin. Easy drinking and definitely worth the modest price."

Edward

Not much here.

"Pretty one dimensional and light, especially for a normally fruit driven primitivo"

Bert

Non-descript

"I purchased this based on the alleged bargain. Cheap yes, but tasteless. Little or no bouquet and it's a reflection of what's to come. All tannins and zero taste. Skip this one."
