Today, the most widely planted red grape variety in France is Bonarda Douce noir. It's also found across much of South America with Argentina topping at 8%. This popularity can be attributed to its ability not only produce wines like those made from cabernet sauvignon but blend well together too!
Bonarda is a grape that has been used to make wine for centuries. These days it's most often found in Chianti, but there are other wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco made from this Toscano variety too!
