This bold, black-fruited red is made from Bonarda, Argentina’s second-most planted grape after Malbec.
What You Need To Know
No country has championed the Bonarda grape like Argentina, where it’s ubiquitous. When planted in the right soil and climate and grown for quality, not quantity, Bonarda blossoms into an inky, dark red wine that’s a bit like a cross between a Merlot and a Zinfandel, with lush fig and plum flavors and leathery, spicy notes. This bottling comes from Argentina’s remote Famatina Valley, a high, semi-arid region where warm days and cool evenings help develop complex flavors in the wine. Valle de La Puerta winemaker Julián Clusellas works in consultation with Mauricio Lorca, who, though still in his 30s, is already one of Argentina’s most esteemed winemaking talents.
