Nieto Partida Limitada Bonarda
This product is currently sold out.
2016 Mendoza, Argentina
14% ABVDeep ruby red in colour. Aromatic, ripe fruit compote flavours on the nose with just a hint of pepper and saddle leather. On the palate, fruit and acid is well balanced with plenty of rich plum flavours and a long silky finish. For such a gutsy wine, it has great finesse.
The wine is stored in French oak barrel for 12 months and aged in bottle for a further 12 months.
Bonarda is the 2nd most widely grown grape in Argentina (after Malbec of course) and is also known in Europe as Douce Noir but mainly used for blended wines by the French and Italian vinyards.
Big Italian dishes including ragu with tagliatelle and ravioli. Also fabulous with mushroom risotto and rather obviously...a good steak.
