This 100% Carbonic Macerated Bonarada was harvested separately at 4 different times and then blended together. Fermentation occurred with indigenous yeast. A seductively perfumed nose evokes musky dank fruits of blueberry, cherry, and raspberry. The vibrant, fruit dominated nose, leads to a soft and round mid palate, held together by firm tannins and bright acidity.
