Aromas of ripe cherry lead to a vibrant palate of sweet plum fruit and pure black cherry notes balanced by fresh acidity, youthful tannins and notes of black pepper.

Bonarda is known as 'Croatina' in the Oltrepo Pavese region.

Castel del Lupo, in the heart of Oltrepò Pavese, dates back centuries - and includes the eighteenth century Palazzo Pegazzera. In 1974 three entrepreneurs took over this historic estate and began a regeneration process. Giovanni Doglio, whose father and grandfather were both Piemontese winemakers, has over 40 years experience managing wineries. Recently joined by his daughter Federica, he has worked tirelessly to develop the estate. They have purchased more vineyards (to cover 100ha at around 300m altitude), planted new vines and built a new cellar. The vineyards are now certified organic. The winery's main focus is high quality bottle-fermented sparkling wine, and much of the vineyard is planted with Pinot Noir for this purpose. However, these vines are also the source of fine still red wines.

The Bonarda vines are Guyot-trained and grow on clay-chalk soils, south-facing, at around 250m altitude. The grapes are hand-harvested and undergo careful selection. Maceration takes place over 5-6 days, with fermentation (including malolactic) in stainless steel. The wine is bottled the following spring.

Excellent with cold cuts, spiced meats and with savoury main courses.
