TASTING NOTE: From a 50-year-old vineyard in the Guaymallén zone, this bonarda has a delicious tannic texture that offers support, helping the wine grip the palate, which is quite the feat for a variety known for its smooth tannins. The rest is a burst of fruit juice with intense ripeness as well as intense acidity, which is also out of the ordinary. A refreshing bonarda, for roast pork.
