Nieto Partida Limitada Bonarda
This product is currently sold out.
A beautiful Bonarda from pioneers of the varietal in Mendoza.
Grapes are hand harvested from vineyards planted in 1974 at the Las Tortugas estate, 1050m above sea level. Grapes are stored in small concrete vats for a two day cold maceration period. The wine is stored in French oak barrel for 12 months and aged in bottle for a further 12 months.
Deep 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.
Ideal with traditional Italian dishes such as tagliatelle and ravioli served with with a hearty red meat and tomato sauce. Also great with mushroom risotto, empanadas and rather obviously...a good steak!
