Memoria Primitivo di Manduria 2004

Via DNA fingerprinting, it has been determined that Primitivo is essentially the same grape as California's Zinfandel, this vintage proves that grape type does not always result in a cookie cutter style.
Although quite palatable, it took me a few sips to lock down the aroma, but once I did, I found it a bit tough to get past it. My intention was to get California Zinfandel for a bargain basement price, but in this case I'll have to keep looking. If you looking for a very earthy, mushroomy, wet hay type of wine, you've just found it.
