Primitivo (also known as Zinfandel) is a variety of red grape. The grape is planted in over 10 percent of California vineyards. DNA fingerprinting revealed that it is genetically equivalent to the Croatian grapes Crljenak Kaštelanski and as well as Tribidrag and the Primitivo variety traditionally grown in Puglia (the "heel" of Italy), where it was introduced in the 18th century.
