Marco Bacci (Italy) – one of the Top winemakers in Tuscany, Italy, who owns three exceptional wineries in the best-known appellations of Tuscany.
The Story about Marco Bacci Wines
Top-quality wine doesn’t need to be hard to come by – and Marco Bacci, the founder of Bacci Wines, is a firm believer in this. As one of Tuscany’s top winemakers, he has made it his mission to provide satisfactory, premium-quality Italian wines for anyone who should wish to sample what a genuine bottle of wine should taste like. His passion for excellence runs deep. This unique enthusiasm and energy – coupled with some of the finest winemaking practices in the world – makes Marco’s range of fine Tuscan wines some of the most delicious to be found anywhere in Singapore.
Marco Bacci is the main man when it comes to Bacci wines. He has developed his preferences and winemaking methods over countless years. Today, you can be confident of a genuinely delectable bottle of wine every time you buy. But where did this incredible journey begin? Many winemakers are born into the wine industry, and this can have certain limitations. Indeed, when a winemaker is born into the industry, they largely grow up knowing all about the family trade. It is not unusual for their parents’ winemaking methods to become their own. However, while this incredible family reputation is impressive, tried-and-true methods aren’t always the perfect solution. This was something that Marco would discover.
Indeed, Marco Bacci was not born into a winemaker family, as so many are; instead, Marco’s family owned a prominent jeans manufacturing company. Marco did as expected and joined the family business at the start of his working life – but he’d always had a passion and fascination for wine. Indeed, growing up in Tuscany – a place where fine wine was always an accompaniment for a fine meal – led to an incredible passion for wine. This would lead him to buy the Castello di Bossi wine estate, which bordered Florence and Sienna, where he would learn more about the soil, the vines, and the made. This was in 1983; then, in 1985, he would create his first bottle of wine.
The wine was good, but it could be so much better, Marco knew – at that moment, he knew that he couldn’t have wine as merely a side hobby. Still, to perfect his methods and create wines that reflected the incredible quality of his used grapes, he needed to put his full time and passion into creating the best bottles possible.
“It was more than 20 years ago I decided to change my life,” he explained, and he would never look back!
Following his first vineyard purchase, he would purchase two more estates: the Renieri estate in Montalcino and the Terre di Talamo in Maremma Toscana.
It was always his passion and ambition to own the best appellation in Tuscany – although he never perhaps realised just how successful his wines would become, nor that they would end up being sold as some of the finest wines on the Singapore market!
These purchases would give him over 200 hectares of fine-quality vineyards to work with to create his exquisite wines. He now collaborates with Jacopo, his son, to produce wines under the Bacci Wines brand that genuinely speak of Tuscan quality. Bacci Wines is all about quality, and no compromises are made to ensure customers enjoy the most delicate bottle of wine possible.
Every grape used to create these rich, exquisite Tuscan wines is grown on the Bacci family’s vineyards, and nothing is ever brought in. In doing so, Marco can guarantee that every grape has been grown to the same exacting standards he expects, which is pivotal to the wine’s quality. Indeed, by keeping everything in house, Marco is proud to supply some of the most fantastic wines in the world that are always consistently delicious. The Bacci family are firm believers that nature has a significant role in the quality of their wines, which is why they grow all of their grapes with the utmost care and an uncompromising eye for detail. Some might call them perfectionists, but the family’s passion for the very finest grapes is invariably why their wines are so delicious!
One of the contributing factors to the Bacci wine quality is that of their unique growing conditions. The grapes are grown 350 metres above sea level in the Southern sight of the Chianti Classico, with a complex abundance of different soil types – truly a wine-growing paradise! The complex soil structure ensures that the grapes have a well-rounded and developed profile and a golden, smooth flavour – the ideal ingredients for creating fine quality wines.
Each of the three vineyards has been carefully planned, with management structures being individually created to make the most of each estate’s unique soils and climate.
This is yet another unique feature of the Bacci wines; few other winemakers put so much thought and care into the growing of every single grape, but this strive for perfection is what makes Bacci wines the best available in Singapore.
In 2019, Renieri’s Brunello di Montalcino was nominated for and won the Wine of the Year by JamesSuckling.
“I am very proud that we run for the wine of the year. For me, it is a dream come true because I work hard here. Here at Renieri, I bought the place in 1999. I cut everything that was here, and I replant from zero. I wait ten years to have my first bottle of Brunello in my hand. But I am thrilled that I made this choice because we are at the top of the ranks every year. And this place (Renieri) – is magic.”Marco Bacci
