"Dark red. Slightly reduced aromas of red and black fruits lifted by spices and eucalyptus. Supple and sweet but a bit simple, showing an herbal edge and modest depth to its dark fruit and spice flavors. Not dry but the tannins are a bit dusty."~
Bodini is a brand produced by Jose Lovaglio, son of Susana Balbo of Dominio del Plata, for the US importers Vine Connections. The name was originally called Budini, which is the name of a wild cat from Argentina, but it was objected by Budweiser! There is a nice story behind this wine, as for every case they sell, the winery donates one dollar and the importers also donate the same amount to a charity called BODINI (Build On Dreams of Individuals, Not Institutions) a foundation they have created to provide education for some 150 children from Agrelo and Cuyo."~LG
"Bodini is project by Susana Balbo's son Jose Lovaglio who is making this wine from their sustainably farmed vineyards. Bodini stands for Built On Dreams of Individuals Not Institutions and is not only the realization of Jose's dreams but that of many children of vineyard workers as the proceeds of this wine go to a scholarship foundation set up to help children of vineyard workers realize their dreams."~Distributor Notes

Bodini stands for "Built On Dreams of Individuals Not Institutions". This is a wine that is built upon the dreams of all those involved in crafting these amazing wines: the dreams of the vineyard and winery teams to do their part to preserve the earth and environment through sustainable viticulture & winemaking practices, the dreams of the winery to promote the well-being of its workers, their families, the community and future generations, and the dreams of a young, up-and-coming winemaker.
A portion of all Bodini wine sales are also donated to the Dominio del Plata Scholarship Foundation which was established to help fulfill the dream of a college education to winery worker families throughout Argentina.
