Bonarda is a red grape variety that is widely grown in Argentina, particularly in the Mendoza region. It is also known as "Bonarda Argentina" to differentiate it from other Bonarda varieties grown in Italy and elsewhere. In Argentina, Bonarda is the second most widely planted red grape variety after Malbec, and it is used to produce both varietal wines and blends.
Bonarda wines from Argentina tend to be fruity, with flavors of blackberries and black cherries, and they can be enjoyed while young or aged for a few years. Bonarda is a versatile grape that can be made into a range of styles, from light and fruity to full-bodied and rich.
