Many grape varieties are cultivated in Italy, thanks to its climate, proximity to the Mediterranean Sea and sufficiently good soil. The Italian wine Primitivo is made from the grape variety of the same name. Its other name is Zinfandel. It is distinguished by its ripeness. Winemaking companies harvest as early as mid-summer. Its berries are quite juicy and have a rich, dark purple color. They are an excellent raw material for the production of red tannic drinks.
