Primitivo is originally from the Puglia region of Italy and is genetically similar to Zinfandel. Many legends surround this grape. They range from the hard to prove (served at the Last Supper) to the hard to believe (it is thought to be the first "Primi" grape). The truth may lie somewhere in between and we do know it is called Primitivo for its propensity to ripen before all other varietals.
