Primitivo Wine Pairing Guide

National Zinfandel day is coming up next week on the 16th! Instead of only celebrating Zin, however, we are going to celebrate Zinfandel’s swanky Italian twin: Primitivo. Primitivo is an Italian varietal known for its profile of dark jammy fruit notes. Genetically, Zinfandel and Primitivo are identical, but that doesn’t stop each wine from boasting its own unique expression. 

Since Primitivo is an easy red wine to enjoy this time of year, use this quick guide to pairing it with all sorts of autumn-inspired favorites!
