Description

Chianti DOCG occupies a special place in the heart– and history– of Ruffino. When Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino founded the winery in 1877, the first wine they produced was a Chianti. And it was the reputation of this wine that launched Ruffino’s early success. In fact, before World War I Ruffino was the only Chianti exported from Italy to the United States, making it an ambassador to wine lovers around the world. In keeping with tradition, Chianti DOCG features a distinct Florentine bottle reminiscent of the fiasco, the straw-dressed flask in which Chianti was originally bottled. Today, Ruffino Chianti DOCG serves as a benchmark for quality and consistency. For many wine lovers worldwide, Ruffino Chianti is Chianti.

Winemaking:

Grapes from the best-known regions of Chianti are used to make our Chianti DOCG. Fermentation is aided by racking and punch-downs in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. Our Chianti DOCG is then aged for four months in stainless steel and concrete vats.

Food Pairing:

Pair this Chianti DOCG with a variety of traditional Italian dishes such as ravioli, margherita pizza, and beef carpaccio. It will be simply perfect. Its brightness and acidity also makes it a great companion for international favorites such as the classic hamburger.
