This Bonarda is a tribute to old Bonardas of the Eastern Mendoza, a wine made in a traditional Mendoza style. This Bonarda shows a deep violet color with bluish reflections. The nose is intense and complex. Intense aromas of ripe black fruit, black berries, raspberries, black cherries, chocolate and liquor, with some spicy notes of fresh herbs provided by theCabernet Franc appear. The taste has a sweet impact with silky tannins and aromas of ripe black and red fruits with notes of licorice and vanilla. Its natural acidity is refreshing. By its concentration and complexity the finish is long and persistent.
They were about to uproot this entire Bonarda vineyard but fortunately I was able to rescue five hectares. This wonderful vineyard, planted in the parral (high pergola) tranining system, is located in Rivadavia.
