Ruffino winery was born in 1877 on the outskirts of Florence with the dream of creating the “ideal wine”.

In the 1960s Ruffino is a symbol of the “Dolce Vita” in Italy and abroad, and enlivens the tables of Charles De Gaulle, HRH the King Gustav of Sweden and HRH the Queen Elizabeth.

When Chianti becomes a DOCG it is a bottle of Chianti Ruffino that carries the first band number AAA00000001.

At this estate, antiquity and modernity blend beautifully.

A 14th century villa with classic Tuscan terra cotta and ochre exterior overlooks scenic vineyards and serves as Ruffino‘s main visitor center.

The lovely gardens and courtyard complete the visitor experience.

Innovation also finds a place here.

An underground barrique tunnel connects the villa with the newer winery buildings where we conduct extensive soil and climate research.

Ruffino Toscana MODUS 2007 *

This red is PHENOMENAL on the nose, with blueberry, light toasty oak, coffee and sweet tobacco.

The palate is full and utterly captivating, with its combination of fruit and very subtle, silky tannins.

Goes on and on.

Best after 2014. 7,000 cases imported. —JS

In the RESTAURANT Le Tre Rane (in honor of Leonardo da Vinci) chef Stefano Frassineti personally chooses the raw materials, which must be strictly seasonal and local.

The tasting menu therefore changes every month and includes 5 courses: an appetizer, a first course, a main course and a dessert, etc.

Each dish is paired with a different Ruffino Top wine, to offer our guests a truly unique sensory experience that is IMPOSSIBLE ELSEWHERE.

Poggio Casciano is situated in the Tuscan hills, a few miles from Florence. “Poggio” means “terrace on a hilltop” and is a fitting description of this estate. The name “Casciano” seems to come from “Cassius”, a commodore in the Ancient Roman army

The fourteenth-century Renaissance villa is the main part of the estate.

The villa looks out over verdant vineyards and is the perfect blend of classicism and modernity.

Elegance, good taste and refinement are the three aspects that distinguish Poggio Casciano.
