Charbono Grape of California
The Charbono grape of California a cousin to the French Corbeau variety of the Savoie region. Charbono grapes make a silky, deep purple, moderately acidic, medium-bodied wine, which hits its peak after aging for 10 to 20 years. Charbono wines are best when paired as part of a hearty meal, as it lifts and blends well with the flavors of meat and nuts. Finding Charbono wine at a store or restaurant is a rare occurrence, as there are only 65 acres in the US producing the grape, most of which are located in Northern California.
