True Zin Puglia 2015 Primitivo (IGT)






True Zin Puglia 2015 Primitivo (IGT), $8.49-$19.99, 88 points, poured an opaque purple/red with a clear rim and moderate legs.
Aromatic mulberry, almond-cherry (kirsch), cedar, and a floral vibe were quite good.
Medium-plus body with good acidity and a sufficient underlayment of tannin carried tart flavors of plum, mulberry, and mushrooms.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, coffee notes, a bit chalky, and a well-integrated 14% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with out Papa Gino's sausage pizza.

  1. Sounds like a bit of a Zin/Primitivo identity crisis.
