Chianti Borghetto is from a selection of the best cuvess of Chianti DOCG, produced in a style that is fresh and modern but still retaining its historical roots. Cantina Bonacchi is located in the heart of Montalbano, has been making fine Tuscan wines for 3 generations produced from 40 hectares in the Chianti Montalbano and the Chianti Classico, as well as from 10 hectares divided between Brunello DOCG, Rosso di Montalcino DOC and the Sant'Antimo DOC. Its newest acquisition is 15 hectares from the Montecucco DOC vines. The Bonacchi objective has always been to produce wines that are elegant but at the same time modern in style and easy to drink.
