Macchia Wines, which produces more single-vineyard Zinfandels than any other winery in Lodi, has just released their first-ever bottling of Primitivo: The 2012 Macchia Lodi Primitivo ($24) — a full bodied yet smooth, mildly tart edged red wine that has something of an “Italian” feel in its bright, upbeat, drink-me-with-food qualities. But like a good Zinfandel, this Primitivo is teeming with sun kissed berryish fruit; tinged with sweet peppercorn spice, and subtle touches of cedarwood-ish oak.

Macchia’s Primitivo is grown by Todd Maley, at his vineyard on Davis Road, just north of Bare Ranch. They’re still learning about the grape — how it grows, and what winemaking practices to apply, said Tim Holdener, Macchia winemaker/owner.
