Piemonte Bonarda DOC

bonardaAn agreeable, lively and young red wine typical of Cisterna d’Asti. The “Bonarda wine” was already present in the cellars of the town’s castle in the nineteenth century. It is therefore no coincidence that the Bonarda became a cultural matter for Cisterna, with interesting applications in the kitchen as well (bonarda chutney).

The sandy soil, rich in minerals, of these hills allows us to produce an unmistakable Bonarda.
