Fatalone Primitivo Riserva, 2006
Primitivo is believed by some to be the Italian equivalent of Zinfandel. And this wine is every bit as bold and powerful as Zins from Dry Creek or elsewhere in California. The aromas and flavors are dark--black fruits, licorice and just the right amount of funk and rusticity. Warm at 15% alcohol, but not at all awkward or tiring to drink. At 10 years of age, it is mature but will keep for several more years.
