Bonaccorsi Wine Santa Barbara County
The late Michael Bonaccorsi was of one of America’s top sommeliers. With his wife Jenne Lee he founded Bonaccorsi to produce top-quality wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and the Rhône varieties. She continues their work. Grapes are sourced from some of the cooler sites in the Santa Maria Valley and Sta. Rita Hills. The Pinot Noirs are all very impressive. There is now an entry level JL Bonarccorsi as well as a number of vineyard designated wines. The tight and youthfully restrained Fiddlestix bottling needs two or three years to soften its mineral structure but offers great persistence and depth. All the wines will develop very well in the short to medium term. (DM)
