The Vin Santo del Chianti DOC Bonacchi 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 del Chianti DOC Bonacchi was left to age for approximately five years.
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.
