Bonacchi Chianti Gentilesco 2018

Producer Note

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.

Vintage

A relatively dry and mild winter led to earlier budding than usual. The spring rainfall guaranteed excellent water reserves during the long, dry summer with temperatures consistently exceeding 30°C, which guaranteed grapes in excellent health.

Vineyard

Sourced from vineyards in the provinces of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pistoia and Pisa, where the soils are mainly marl and limestone. The vines are Cordon spur trained.

Winemaking

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 obtain delicate extraction of flavour, colour and tannins. Malolactic fermentation followed fermentation spontaneously. Made in an unoaked style to showcase the purity of fruit.

Tasting Note

An intense ruby red wine, delivering concentrated aromas of cherry fruit. Soft and medium-bodied with a smooth, fresh fruit palate, this is elegant in its simplicity.

Serving Suggestion

A great match for grilled red meats and full-flavoured tomato based pasta dishes.  We also have a fantastic Mulled Wine recipe for you to try.
