Primitivo

This dark skinned grape variety is used to produce inky, full flavoured, fruity wines from the Puglian region of Southern Italy (The Heel).

Recently, DNA fingerprinting has shown that the Zinfandel from California is infact the Primitivo from Italy and was introduced into the USA in the mid 19th Century, probably via Austria or Croatia

As for the taste, this really depends on the ripeness of the grapes and where they were grown. Rich Raspberry fruit flavours are common in cooler climates, whereas warmer areas such as Puglia, produce great wines with blackberry, anise and pepper notes, with the flavours becoming richer the older the vines are.
