Bonacchi Chianti Gentilesco 2020

A medium bodied Chianti with ripe red cherry fruit, easy
drinking and fruity.


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
The 2020 harvest was excellent in terms of quality, even if it was not abundant in
quantity. The Sangiovese grapes reached perfect maturity levels, and the fruit was
harvested in excellent health, providing all the hallmarks for the production of great red
wines.


Vineyard
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.


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 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.


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.
