Zin lovers should seek out Puglia’s Primitivos,
which are made from a genetically identical
grape and offer similarly bold fruit flavors.
What You Need To Know
Until recently, most Primitivo from
Puglia got shipped to Italy’s north in bulk to add warm fruitiness
to leaner wines. But in the 1990s, many Puglians began treating
this grape with new respect, limiting crop yields to improve
quality and aging the wines in oak. Casa Vinicola Botter embodies
this shift: Founded in 1928 by Carlo Botter, it became a successful
n.gociant, blending bulk wines from all over Italy. In the 1990s,
Botter’s grandchildren, Luca, Annalisa and Alessandro,
revamped the business to focus on quality. Their succulent
Doppio Passo Primitivo gets picked in stages—only the ripest
grapes get picked at each vineyard pass—and aged partly in
Jammy plum and
round, with plum and
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
