Appellation: Puglia

Puglia is located on the backside of the heel of Italy's “boot” that extends into the ocean. It is notable for it production of Primitivo which is the Italian name for Zinfandel.

Grape Type: Primitivo

Widely recognised as a Californian varietal, Zinfandel is actually of Croatian origin and has been found to be the same as Italy's Primativo. Initially dominating Californian wine production in the late 19th Century, being a high yielding varietal, Zinfandel was largely grubbed up and replaced by Cabernet in the mid to late 20th Century. The commercial popularity of the off-dry rosé White Zinfandel has rejuvenated the plantings and though the varietal can sometimes be high in alcohol, there are some excellent examples available, including the excellent Heitz Cellars.
