Prestige Wine & Spirits Group is pleased to announce their partnership with family owned, Tuscan Winery – Cantine Bonacchi. The winery is located in Montalbano, in the heart of the Chianti production zone, and has been operating for three generations. Founded in 1970 by Giovanni Bonacchi and now run by his son, Andrea, Cantine Bonacchi is passionate about family and people.
Bonacchi wines are made in a ‘modern style’ with brighter fruit flavors, balance and good structure while still maintaining a level of classic elegance and refinement. Bonacchi wines are estate grown and bottled, which lends to consistency in quality, flavor and price.
Bonacchi wines are perfect for those looking for an authentic and affordable taste of Tuscany – expressive, full of character and extremely memorable. The wines of Bonacchi are available now in select markets. The four wines carefully selected to represent a variety of prices and styles are:
