Tenuta del Monsignore
The Domain of Tenuta del Monsignore spreads over almost 80 hectares in San Giovanni in Marignano, about half an hour away from the sea and well-known seaside resorts of Rimini. The name of the domain was Bacchini until the 1800s but has been changed to Monsignore after Francesco Bacchini became the Bishop of Terni!
Tenuta del Monsignore is perhaps one of the oldest family-run wine producers in Italy. The Bacchini family, originally from Florence, started producing their unique wines in as many as 1300! And today the 18th generation is still at the head via Sandro Bacchini.
Great supporters of tradition, the family has used many production techniques from the past for a very authentic results! Combined with today’s modern techniques, the Bacchini family can therefore preserve the traditional flavors and at the same time make the most of their grapes, resulting in a very impressive result and drinking experience. The wines of Tenuta del Monsignore are therefore also well known for their suppleness, elegance and delicacy!
Wine and Feelings: According to the Bacchini family, wine is not only against thirst, but also has spiritual effects. Each wine gives you a different feeling as a person and these emotions are important to observe, feel and shar! The Bacchini family has therefore highlighted which feelings should be evoked by each wine!
