Weekday Tuscan Showcase, with Marco Bacci of Renieri
Friday, October 19th | In-store | 2-3pm
Zachys is proud to welcome Marco Bacci at a special Friday afternoon tasting, where he will be pouring his critically acclaimed wines. “Class, finesse …everything in balance”, raves wine critic James Suckling about Bacci’s wines. Now we will all get to see for ourselves!
Marco Bacci was the first in his family to fully embrace winemaking. In 1978 he began helping his father with the family business: clothing and fashion. Over the course of just a few years, their company became one of the most successful and important businesses in the fashion industry of Italy. In 1983 he had purchased a vineyard as a real estate investment. This vineyard was known as Castello di Bossi, and in 1985 Marco was “bitten by the wine bug” and created the first bottle of Corbaia. The wine remained a side project until 1995, when he immersed himself fully into viticulture.
Over the course of the next few years, he would also purchase estates in Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano out of a desire to own the “three best appellations of Tuscany”, and subsequently replace all vines. Zachys is more than happy to showcase wines from each of the three: Tenuta Renieri, Renieri, and Terre di Talamo.
His wines are crafted with the utmost care, using low yields (“One vine per bottle”, according to Marco) and superior winemaking techniques to craft wines reflective of their respective terroir. All wineries are practicing organic, and Marco is a strong proponent of green energy, nature conservation, and environmentalism. All of his wines are perennial favorites amongst consumers and reviewers alike, and are highly affordable given their massive level of quality. We are thrilled to have Marco pour his favorite wines in addition the selections listed below, and we look forward to seeing you at this special Friday tasting!
