Located in the heart of Montalbano, Cantine Bonacchi has been crafting fine Tuscan wines for three generations. The site of an ancient grain mill built next to the 'Suga' creek in the northern district of Castiglion di Bosco in the 16th century is now the source for classic Brunello's. This estate caught the eye of Andrea Bonacchi, purchasing it in the 1970s and planting 12 hectares of vineyards. Farming is entirely organic and sustainable, with the wines made by Ivan Misuri, who studied at the University of Florence.
Cantine Bonacchi is composed of 3 farms which have 40 ha of vineyards in Chianti Montalbano located around the bottling plant; of 23 ha of Chianti Classico vineyard in the Casalino Farm in Castelnuovo Berardenga; 11 hectares of vineyards in Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino and 12 hectares of vineyards dedicated to the production of Chianti Colli Senesi and Vermentino in the Molino della Suga farm in Montalcino.
