Food Pairings for Altos las Hormigas Bonarda Colonia las Liebres
Color: deep strong red Nose: Green Pepper / raspberry Medium body
Solid whine, good with steaks.
Berries and spice on the nose and full dark fruit flavors with light tannic finish. Very pleasant overall.
Great value, smooth finish, light-to-medium bodied and an all around solid performing wine.
This wine is dark, dark, purple, almost black, and the bouquet is kicking off more than my nose can handle after an hour and a half, in a good way. This is a rich wine, well balanced with tannins firm and up front, I think I noticed the tannins before the taste settled in. I am fairly sure that this is the first time I've had a pure Bonarda wine and it will not soon be forgotten. This is definitely a wine to pop and enjoy all evening, with some good Italian fare of course.
External Reviews for Altos las Hormigas Bonarda Colonia las Liebres
From the Altos Las Hormigas gang comes this Bonarda that hits with more power than precision, yet in the long run it makes the grade as a fun wine with plenty to offer. The nose is full of dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and marzipan, while the palate and finish are equally fruity and forward. The perfect red for burgers.
Clean, pure and driven with fresh plum fruit and a dash of vanilla. Uncomplicated and tasty. Drink now.
The 2007 Bonarda is 100% varietal aged in stainless steel. Purple-colored and very fragrant, it offers up scents of strawberry and raspberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, lively wine with pleasant acidity and ample ripe fruit. It would be a superb match with a pulled pork sandwich.
Highly expressive aromas of black raspberries, plums, and violets are found in the nose of the 2004 Bonarda Colonia Las Liebres. Well-concentrated, this medium-bodied wine is expressive, displaying loads of plummy, floral flavors. Its finish reveals some firm tannin. Drink it over the next 3 years.
Ripe and juicy, with lots of plum, sweet toast, cocoa and boysenberry jam notes that are fleshy and delicious through the finish. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now.
A red grape you may associate with Italy's Piedmont region or a wine from California known as Charbono; the red Bonarda is making the biggest splash in Argentina. Purple-reddish in color with heady amounts of plum and cherry aromas. Fermented in all stainless steel to preserve the young wine's fruity fresh quality. Amazingly deep, with slow legs and a lush, full mouthful of black fruits. Great value.
Handsome ruby and purple hues color. Deep nose of fresh berries, such as strawberry and rasberry. Smooth and ample in the beginning, the palate ends with a pleasant light acidity, which uplifts its freshness and persistence. This wine reflects both the grape, with its deep and vibrant fruit, and the vintage, with its concentration and texture.
This label was created by consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini and his partners at Altos Las Hormigas for the production of Bonarda. Bonarda vines were brought to Argentina by Piemontese immigrants at the beginning of the 20th century and were traditionally planted with Barbera. Over the years, growers have slowly replaced the Barbera with Bonarda and now many of the old vineyards are 100% Bonarda. Grapes for this wine were grown in 30 year old high-trellised vineyards in Los Campamentos, Rivadavia. Night time temperatures are 2°C lower than the rest of the eastern area, allowing the aromatic qualities in the grapes to develop fully. Deep red in colour, with youthful purple lights. On the nose the Bonarda has fresh, red fruit perfumes, with hints of plums and forest fruit. Unoaked, the fruit characters are allowed to shine through on the palate, with flavours of spicy plums and blackberries, supported by rounded ripe tannins and a youthful acidity.
