Chianti, Ruffino 75cl

Chianti, Ruffino

When Chianti became a DOCG in 1984, it was a bottle of Ruffino Chianti that wore the first warranty strip bearing the number 00000001. Even though this might not have been an intentional gesture, it seems to render a secret tribute, giving Ruffino and its Chianti ‘first-born’ status in the appellation. This was the first wine produced by the founders Ilario and Leopoldo, and is a wine that has written many pages in Italian wine history. Made exclusively of Sangiovese, it shows floral and fruity notes that lead towards spicy scents of white pepper and hazelnuts.
