    Zinfandel California 2022
  • Let us start immediately with a curiosity. The grape variety used here, Zinfandel, is a very close relative of another grape, 100% Italian. We are talking about Primitivo. Zinfandel and Primitivo, in fact, despite being two different varieties, have a common origin. Both derive from a grape variety called 'Crljenak Kaštelanski', originating in the Dalmatian region of Croatia. During the 19th century, this vine was imported to the United States and Italy. In the United States, it took the name Zinfandel and became a very popular variety in California. In Italy, on the other hand, it spread mainly in the region of Apulia under the name Primitivo. In common, the two grape varieties have a fondness for warm climates and a rather early ripening, hence the name 'Primitivo'. Western Cellars offers it here in a very 'traditional' version, deep red with purple hues, intense aromas of well-ripened red and dark fruit. In the mouth, however, one discovers a complex, intense and enveloping wine. An ideal red to accompany tasty meat dishes. Excellent with both beef and pork, especially in summer it is the ideal snack companion when meat is grilled.

    Western Cellars is a fine Californian winery. It is located outside of the common Napa or Sonoma area, as its 25 hectares of vineyards are in the Lodi area, one of the most unique in Northern California. While Californian viticulture is world-renowned, the Lodi area in central California's San Joaquin County is one of the state's most important wine regions. The wine industry here has a long history dating back as far as 1850. Production is varied, thanks to the Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. But Lodi is particularly known for the production of the Zinfandel grape, which is the region's flagship variety and yields rich, robust wines.
