2009 Vini del Sole Primitivo Gary Thomas March 29, 2011 Tasting Notes 1 Comment Green pepper, rather than black, on the nose with hints of thyme in the background. Some blackberry notes but no great fruit and mildly herbaceous. Still, certainly a serviceable quaff in an everyday Italian. A good wine for spaghetti or sausage and peppers. Recommended. WHO: Vini WHAT: Primitivo WHERE: Puglia, Italy WHEN: 2009 HOW MUCH: Approx. $12 (Media sample) http://bestwineforbeginners.com/wine-for-beginners/rosso-primitivo-red-zinfandel Rosso Primitivo I would certainly recommend any Primitivo. I recently had the pleasure of tasting this variety and found it to be a great quaffing wine with a considerable amount of interest in every sip!
