Discover Chianti Wines
A Chianti wine is any wine produced in Chianti, which is located in central Italy's Tuscany area, some 60 miles inland from the Ligurian Sea on the west coast. Chianti's closest city, Florence, is less than an hour away, making the region a favorite wine-loving tourist destination. The Chianti region is famed for its sweeping scenery, scorching summers, and a rich history of art and cuisine. Chianti is named after its place of origin, rather than the grape used to make it, which in this case is Sangiovese, as is the case with most other Old World wines.
To be named Chianti, the wine must be made entirely of Sangiovese grapes and produced in the Chianti region. In most cases, winemakers use Sangiovese exclusively, but in vintages where balance is required, native grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino are blended in. International varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah appear on occasion.
About the Producer: Ruffino
Ruffino is a large wine company based in Tuscany, but it also produces wines from various regions of central and northern Italy. The company was founded in 1877 when cousins Hilario and Leopoldo Ruffino founded a small winery in Pontassieve, near Florence. In the 1880s, the company regularly received international awards, and in 1890, it became an official supplier to the Italian royal family. Ruffino bought his first property after World War II and became the first owner of a property in Chianti Classico, Montepulciano and Montalcino. ... The Gretole estate is almost entirely dedicated to the flagship Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro, while the Greppone Mazzi estate in Montalcino supplies Brunello. About 600 hectares (1,483 acres) are now cultivated, divided into six Tuscan properties; Generic Chianti and Toscana IGT are also produced in all three colors. Wines from outside Tuscany include Orvieto Classico, Moscato d'Asti and various Prosecco wines. Current production is around 1,300,000 cases per year. Constellation Brands has owned the company since 2011, initially acquiring 40 percent of the shares in 2004.
