Primitivo has the taste of earth

Here's a wine that really cannot be duplicated by anything from California. Not everyone will be happy with the dark , earthy tastes of this Italian red but I really liked it. Primitive is very much and old world Zin but with a bit less sweetness. There's almost a port-like finish on the wine mixed with the earthy flavors and texture. Its a nice taste of Italy for just under ten dollars. $ 9.95 at Shoppers corner. I'll give it 7 1/2 swings.
