Deep red in color, this wine displays aromas of redfruit, chocolate, and coffee. On the palate, there is a lot of personality with flavors of cherries and raspberries mixed with hints of cocoa and espresso bean. This wine has great structure and a persistent fruit-filled finish.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2011 Nieto Senetiner Reserva Bonarda is just a little reduced on the nose, with a touch of banana skin infusing the pleasant mulberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannins, good acidity and a very harmonious finish that offers crisp blackberry, mulberry and apricot fruit. This is a well-crafted Bonarda at a great price. Drink now-2016. (Oct 2012)

The winery was managed by different families during the first decades of the past century; hence the architectural style of the Italian countryside that still remains today.
In the year 1969, the winery was acquired by the family Nieto Senetiner, who expanded the premises starting a new period f growth. In the year 1998 the winery became part of the Group Molinos Rio de la Plata. The winery is consolidated as a leader among wines and sparkling wines, from medium quality to high-end wines.
