Chianti Classico Riserva Cantine Bonacchi 2011
From grapes in the original, “classic”, Chianti geographic region of Tuscany. The classicos are premium Chianti wines that tend to be medium-bodied with firm tannins and medium-high to high acidity. Floral, cherry and light nutty notes are characteristic aromas with the wines expressing more notes on the mid-palate and finish than at the front of the mouth.The “riserva” is made from grapes with restricted harvest yields, and must be aged for at least 24 months at the winery. 2009 was a superb vintage for Chianti. This Bonacchi Chianti Classico Riserva is a top-notch Chianti, worthy of special attention.
