Argentina and Bonarda – History of Argentine Bonarda Red Wine Varietal

December 21, 2010
Every wine drinker is familiar with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Zinfandel, and all of the other commonly known red wine varietals. Only but the most experienced wine drinkers have ever heard of the Bonarda red wine varietal. Here is a quick rundown on a new grape variety that is soon to take the red wine variety by storm.
Bonarda is a red wine varietal that is commonly grown in Argentina. Bonarda was the most widely planted grape variety in Argentina until it was surpassed by big brother Malbec.
The origins of the Bonarda grape are somewhat cloudy. Many claim that it originated in Italy. There are three different types of Bonarda in Italy, and it is not known whether the Argentine version of Bonarda is the same as one of these three or not. There is also a grape variety in California called Charbono, which many people think is the same as the Bonarda that is grown in Argentina today.
Bonarda was not commonly used to create varietal wines. It was mainly used for bulk production of table wines. However in recent years the varietal versions of Bonarda have become more popular. Many experts say that it will reach the same infamy that Malbec has reached. It is being used more often in professional wine tastings in Buenos Aires and Mendoza.
Bonarda wines are very light and fruity. Common aromas include cherry and plum. It has light tannins and a medium level of acidity.
Bonarda may never reach the fame that Malbec has achieved in the Argentine export market, but it does make for a deliciously light red wine that will definitely achieve a good level of success in and out of Argentina.
