Grifone Primitivo

Grifone Primitivo - From Old Vine Zinfandel - Puglia, Indicazione Geografica Tipica, bottled by Roccadoro, Pontedera Italy and imported by Latitude Wines for Trader Joes, is a delicious red wine from the heel of Italy.  "Zinfandel in America, Primitivo in Italy, Mali Plavac in Croatia" the back label states.  Whatever the name, it is delicious, smooth, full flavored, and at $8 a bottle, very economical to drink.  I enjoyed it with a nice rare grilled grass fed rib eye steak.  Yum.

...and it was infinitely better than the $2.49 "Three Wishes".
