A few sips of Masso Antico Primitivo and I’m dancing in the aisles, giggling like a schoolboy. I like to say that Primitivo is the Italian version of what we know as Zinfandel. Actually, Primitivo and Zinfandel are both clones of a Croatian grape called Crljenak. That’s enough of that mumbo jumbo. At $12.99, you can’t pass up buying a six-pack and taking advantage of the new 10 percent discount. I sipped on a glass and nibbled on a hunk of Adam’s Reserve New York Extra Sharp Cheddar (made in Hiram, sold at Giant Eagle), then feasted on a grilled, thick-cut pork chop. Lots of blueberry and elderberry flavors with little raspberry kisses on the finish.

Buy it at Mustard Seed Market Highland Square, West Point Market, and by the bottle at Vaccaro’s Trattoria. Send questions to philyourglass@gmail.com.
