Wine from my collection: Durigutti Bonarda 2009

Bonarda is the most-planted grape in Argentina, despite being overshadowed in sales by malbec (in America, at least). When I was in Argentina, I didn't have one malbec that really rocked my world. Not one. But a wine distributor friend there told me that bonarda was going to be the next big thing.

So I've been keeping my eyes open for bonarda since then (though it has yet to become the next big thing). This bottle is very fruity, not terribly structured, and very drinkable for the price--also retailing under $15.
