Bonarda

Confusion from Italy to Argentina

An epic confusion surrounds the Bonarda vine variety. At least six different grapes in northern Italy bear this name. The most widespread is the Bonarda Piemontese. Vintners from Piedmont gladly wed them with Nebbiolo in order to soften its youthful gruffness. For the Bonarda seduces with soft tannins and fragrant, red-berried fruit. Argentina also has a vine variety is known by Bonarda. However, this one is related to the Piedmontese Dolcetto.
