More Information

Bonacchi, Chianti Gentilesco

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 grapes for this Chianti are grown in the provinces of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pistoia and Pisa. The climate here is continental with long, hot summers, often with cooler nights, which helps to balance the fruit concentration in the grapes with natural acidity. The vineyards are situated on mainly marl and limestone, which produce fresh and elegant wines. The vines are Cordon spur trained and are manually harvested at optimal ripeness.

The Sangiovese grapes were manually harvested and were immediately transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Daily pumping over and rack and return techniques obtained delicate extraction of flavour, colour and tannins. Malolactic conversion spontaneously followed fermentation, resulting in a softer expression. This wine was made in an unoaked style to showcase the purity of fruit.
