We love the sentiment behind this wine. Emma Zuccardi is Sebastian Zuccardi’s grandmother, who he describes as ‘An elegant and charming woman of great personality. The Emma Zuccardi Bonarda pays tribute to that woman.'
If you've not tried Bonarda before, this is a beautiful example of how good this grape can be. Expect plenty of blueberry and blackberry fruit, a little herbal character and some minerality from ageing in concrete eggs. A classy Bonarda with good structure and an elegant finish.
Great to read through the report by Alistair Cooper MW on the 2020 harvest. The country recorded its hottest March on record. Multiple heatwaves and low rainfall contributed to smaller berries and lower yields.
