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. Bonacchi's combined production comprises 60,000 HL stored in barrels, barriques, oak tonnaux and modern steel tanks. Cantina Bonacchi is ISO9001 2000 and IFT certified. The family's main goal is to produce quality wines at reasonable prices. 50% of the production is exported to Europe, U.S.A and Japan whilst the remainder is sold to all sectors of the Italian market.
The vineyard is made up of poor, dry, rocky soils lacking in nutrients.
A temperature controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with eight days of maceration on the skins and nine days of malolactic fermentation.
An easy drinking wine with aromas of fresh cherry, hints of liquorice which lead to a soft, light bodied palate with mouth-watering fresh cherry flavours and a hint of butterscotch on the finish.
A versatile wine which accompanies a variety of dishes, but shines with tomato based Italian cuisine.
