Winemaker Notes

The Bonarda grape, commonly known to originate in Piedmont, finds its best expression in Argentina, where it has been widely planted. The property's best plots of this varietal are used to make this wine, which shows a deep red color with blue hints. On the nose, prominent blueberry and ripe cherry aromas stand out. With sweet flavors in the mouth, the wine shows ripe, soft tannins. The new oak barrels contribute coconut and smoke notes to this elegant wine.

Food Match: Soft cheeses, roasts, red meat, pasta in meat sauce, Hard cheeses, grilled vegetables, grilled meats, fowl, beef, BBQ.

Broquel is an additional brand produced by Trapiche. With its 120 years of history Trapiche is reinforcing its leadership as the most exported wine brand of Argentina. Three years ago the company began an intensive transformation, both in the vineyards and in the winery to consolidate Trapiche's position as the leading wines of Argentina. One of the pillars in this transformation was to concentrate the responsibility of the vineyards and the winemaking in one Chief Winemaker; the appointed person for this ambitious objective was Mr. Daniel Pi.

The wines have a new international style, with more fruit and personality. The grapes are now not only coming from Trapiche's greatest vineyards in Mendoza, but also from the very best terroirs of Argentina.

All these changes needed to be shown not only inside the bottle but outside as well. A fresh, appealing, eye-catching and international packaging was developed across the entire portfolio.

With vineyards tretching along the eastern side of the Andes Mountains from Patagonia in the south to Salta in the north, Argentina is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic wine producing countries—and most important in South America.

Since the late 20th century vineyard investments, improved winery technology and a commitment to innovation have all contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains is used heavily to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Argentina’s famous Mendoza region, responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, with Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley most noteworthy. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white.

The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

Bonarda is a name given to a handful of distinct grape varieties, mainly growing in Italy and in Argentina. In Lombardy’s Oltrepò Pavese and Emilia Romagna’s Colli Piacentini zones, the grape called Bonarda is actually Croatina. In Novara, Bonarda Novarese, often blended with Spanna (Nebbiolo), is actually Uva Rara. DNA profiling shows that most of the Bonarda in Argentina is actually identical to California’s Charbono—and Charbono is actually the Douce Noire grape from Savoie. Somm Secret—Bonarda Piemontese, an aromatic variety, is the only true Bonarda. Before phylloxera, it covered 30% of Piedmontese vineyard acreage.
