The Nerdy Bits... 

The Primitivo grape, which is named Zinfandel in the USA, possibly reached this part of Italy 2,000 years ago on ships from the Dalmatian coast, of what is now Croatia. After a controlled fermentation, the wine is aged in a mixture of French and American barriques for at least ten months, prior to final blending and bottling
