Originally Italian, but actually referring to three distinct varieties grown in northern Italy, it was taken to Argentina in the 19th century by Italian immigrants where it has flourished - it was the most planted variety in Argentina in the 1990s, but may well have been overtaken by Malbec by now. There is much confusion over bonarda and some believe that the Argentinean variety is actually a Californian variety called charbono, which in itself may well be the dolcetto of northern Italy. The result, regardless of its ampelographical history, is a deep coloured wine with firm structure and black berry hedgerow flavours.
