Caligiore Bonarda Reserve 2009
The origin of Bonarda in Argentina is a subject of disagreement, some say it hails from Italy & others feel it is the Charbono grape from California... what ever the case, it has found its home in Mendoza & is the second most planted red grape in Argentina. Organically grown at high elevations in the foothills of the Andes, this wine shows power with elegance & light tannins. Somewhere between a fruity Merlot and a spicy Red Zin, this red wine is packed full of flavor!
