It has long been looking for the origin of the mainly in the USA famous grape ZINFANDEL. Finally, the mystery was solved in 1999. After DNA analyzes turned out that the PRIMITIVO grape variety is identical with the Zinfandel.
Wines from the grape PRIMITIVO can safely be called high-quality wines. They have a high sugar content, which consequently leads to a relatively high alcohol content. Nevertheless, they maintain a harmonious taste.
