Distillery Information

Ruffino continued to invest in new vineyards and became one of the first major wineries with vineyard estates in Italy's three most renowned wine-producing regions - Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Chianti Classico is a dry, red wine made only in a specific part of Tuscany in central Italy. Here's how to make sure you're getting the real deal. Specifically in central Tuscany, in the mountain-air-cooled hills between Siena and Florence by the Monti Chianti.May Since 1996 the blend for Chianti and Chianti Classico has been 75–100% Sangiovese, up to 10% Canaiolo and up to 20% of any other approved red grape variety such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah. Since 2006, the use of white grape varieties such as Malvasia and Trebbiano have been prohibited in Chianti Classico.
10 000 hectares of vines are planted, and 7100 of these are Chianti Classico vineyards. Classico was the first of the DOCG Chianti subregions; since then, seven more have been added (you'll probably recognize names such as Colli Senesi or Ruffina appended to Chianti).
Chianti DOCG Red Wine combines sangiovese grapes with merlot and cabernet sauvignon to create this top quality red wine blend. This Ruffino wine features deep, fruity plum and intense cherry flavors, accompanied by hints of spice, hazelnut, and delicate violet aromas.
