Bonacchi Vin Santo del Chianti 2008

A traditional Tuscan sweet wine with honied aromas of peach, caramelised oranges and caramel.


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.

Vineyard
The vines are grown in the Chianti Classico zone, in marl and limestone soils. The simple Guyot trained vines are manually harvested at optimal ripeness.

Winemaking
The bunches of grapes were carefully harvested and then hung up to dry for approximately two months in a well-ventilated room. The dried grapes were rigorously selected and pressed; the resulting must was transferred into small oak barrels, known as caratelli. The barrels were not filled to the top to allow controlled oxidation to occur. Following oxidation, the barrels were then filled to make them airtight and the Vin Santo was left to age for approximately five years.

Tasting Note
Amber in colour with intense, heady aromas of candied fruit and toffee. The palate is sweet, with balancing freshness and shows lovely complexity from the ageing, which delivers caramel notes with sweet, citrus fruits through to a deliciously long finish.
