2006 Ognissole Primitivo Di Manduria: Good aroma, but more acidic

oct. 2, 2011: this was the second wine my father served with our roasted chicken, potatoes, carrots and onions. he served this to compare a red zinfandel with a primitivo, since these are different clones of the same croatian grape. we all agreed that this primitivo wasn't as expressive as the 1992 ridge. given, these were two very different vintages. but my dad thought this wine was acidic, though it smelled good. my mom, however, didn't like the aroma at all and said it had a strong tannic finish. greg said the first wine (the 1992 ridge zinfandel) was better, though he detected a blackberry and cherry nose. but it had an acidic finish. as for me, i thought we were all spoiled by the ridge. this primitivo definitely couldn't compare. 14.5 percent alcohol.
