Cantine Fratelli Bonelli (Emilia Romagna)
The wines of Cantine Fratelli Bonelli are absolutely delightful and an enchanting departure from the ordinary. They proudly hail from the little-known DOC of Colli Piacentini nestled between the Piedmont and Lombardy in the lovely Emilia region of Italy. Importers speeding between the Piedmont and Tuscany would do well to detour to Cantine Bonelli to taste these wines.
The Bonelli family has been making wines since the 1940s, and today is one of the region's most famous producers. The variety of wines and variety of styles is amazing, with reds and whites made frizzante and still, dry and off-dry, as is traditional in the region.
For Italian wine importers (and other importers) who are seeking to offer the market something traditional, unique, delicious and fun, the wines of Cantine Bonelli are a must. From their various styles of Gutturnio (a Barbera, Bonarda blend), to their Ortrugo (a variety native to the region), and their Trebbianino Val Trebbia, which was created by Anacleto Bonelli in the 1950s and which has become a benchmark wine of the region, Bonelli wines define the Colli Piacentini.
