Fall Wine Recommendation: Il Valore 2006 Primitivo
After Mary’s review of wines carried by Trader Joe’s, we thought we’d share one of our recent Trader Joe’s discoveries. It’s the Il Valore 2006 Primitivo – find out why it’s our favorite wine bargain for fall after the jump!
The primitivo grape, a close relative of zinfandel, is grown mostly in the southern Italian region of Puglia and is rarely seen outside of Italy. In fact, this might be the only primitivo wine we can remember seeing available commercially!
Here in Massachusetts, this wine is priced at $3.99 a bottle – dangerously reasonable if you ask us! We believe it’s carried nation-wide, so ask for it next time you’re at a Trader Joe’s.
