Production zone: from the hills in the town of Cigognola, an area that is suited to growing Croatina.
Vines: 100% Croatina
Vinification: hand picked grapes. Fermentation in stainless.
Colour: inky deep ruby with some purple reflexes
Aroma: intense aromas of strawberry, roses and a light, pleasant vinosity. A little fig and spices.
Taste: the perfumed character is nicely balanced by the more tannic, dry finish and the light fizziness. More red fruits and a hint of dark chocolate in the finish.
Accompaniment: excellent as an aperitivo with little nibbles, salame and light cheeses or with avocado toast and quick-pickled onions.
Serving temperature: does well at 16-18 C but happy slightly chilled.
Summary: for any wine lover looking for new discoveries Bonarda is a must. It has an intoxicatingly voluptuous nose, fizzy and fresh mouth feel … simply delicious.
