Aromatic blueberry and blackberry on the nose, with dark berries and soft tannins on a velvety palate. Excellent choice with beef dishes.

Zuccardi's Serie A 2016 Bonarda is produced with wine grapes sourced from the Santa Rosa, Mendoza wine region. Great value under $20, on the nose the wine is blueberry, blackberry, violet and sugar plum. On the palate, the wine is dry, medium-bodied, supple with soft tannins. Bonarda is the second most planted grape variety in Argentina. This wine may have a cult following. Give it a bit of a chill and pair it with grilled meats and root vegetables. - Community Wine Reviews
