Many Italian Americans are Zinfandel lovers, and many became "Zinfomaniacs" after it became known that Zinfandel and Primitivo are the same grape.

The Italians claim that American Zinfandel originated from the Southern Italian grape Primitivo.

We can add to the story that the Croatians claim that the original Zinfandel is the Croatian grape Plavac Mali.
