Bonarda

Common synonyms: Croatina, Bonarda Piemontese, Uva Rara, Bonardo Novarese

History of the grape: Bonarda is a confusing grape to describe because, depending on where it was made, one person’s Bonarda is another person’s Charbono. The story begins in Italy, where this grape has three offshoots: The Bonarda grape planted in north central Italy in Otrepo Pavese and Colli Piacentini is known there as Croatina. When one sees “Bonarda” on an Italian wine, chances are it is this grape, which originated in Croatia, hence the name. Then there is the Bonarda known as Uva Rara (Bonardo Novarese) grown in Piedmont. Finally, the Bonarda known as Bonarda Piemontese, which is also from Piedmont, but very rarely seen, however, this is considered the “true” Bonarda.

A grape known as Bonarda has become one of the top two most popular red grapes in Argentina (next to Malbec). However, that grape is believed to really be Charbono (Corbeau in France), and not related to the Italian Read more »

    A 2012 Bonarda from Mendoza, Argentina. Ruby color with mid-rim variation. Dark fruits hints of raspberry and cherry with a hint of lavender. It has mid-finish on the palette and balanced acidity. This wine will mature over time (peak time 2018-2020). Best served chilled to 60 degrees, and served with a pasta dish. Read More

  • Alamos Red Blend 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of tannins in this wine. Decant for thirty to forty-five minutes. Otherwise nice blend of spices with a relatively smooth finish. Not bad in a pinch Read More

  • Tilia Bonarda 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice dark color i the glass. Woody nose with some volatiles. Very fruity--cherries, strawberries--on the tip of the tongue. Not a very full-bodied wine. Probably best characterized as a "pop-n-pour" with no aging potential. A reasonably quaff, but nothing to brag about. US$8.99 at Wine Club. Read More
