A-Mano 1998 Primitivo ($9.99)
Primitivo, once thought to be an ancestor of Zinfandel, is now generally believed to be the identical grape, most likely shipped back from California to Italy during the 1800s. As it is usually grown and vinified in Italy, I don't find much Zin nature in it; but I enjoy it in its own right. This one is an inky blackish-purple in color, with ripe, plummy fruit aromas and flavors, mouth-filling and tart. A warm-weather wine, made to go with Mediterranean fare. U.S. importer: Empson (U.S.A.) Inc., Alexandria, Va. (May 29, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: Fine with a turkey couscous.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.|
