Cantina Bonacchi, has been making fine Tuscan wines for three generations. The wines are produced from 40 hectares in the Chianti Montalbano area, as well as from 10 hectares divided between Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. They also own 20 hectares in the Chianti Classico area. Modern technology and family expertise enables Bonacchi to offer excellent products from their four estates in Tuscany.
The Sangiovese grapes are grown in a limited area in the provinces of Florence and Siena. The vines are spur cordon trained and are grown in marl and limestone soils. The grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness using traditional methods and modern automated machinery ensuring the optimum freshness of the berries.
A temperature controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with eight days maceration on the skins and nine days malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in large oak barrels for a minimum of one year.
An easy-drinking style of Chianti with intense aromas of cherry and a delicate hint of violet On the palate it is warm, dry and balanced with concentrated cherry fruits enhanced by coffee notes on the finish.
A versatile red that accompanies grilled meats, roasts and game dishes perfectly.
