Chianti D.O.C.G. occupies a special place in the heart 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 keeping with tradition, this wine features a distinct Florentine bottle reminiscent of the “fiasco” in which Chianti was originally bottled. Today, it serves as a benchmark for quality and consistency, and for many wine lovers worldwide, Ruffino Chianti is Chianti. Medium-bodied, well-balanced and aromatic, with classic Chianti aromas of violet and wonderful cherry fruit flavours, finishing with lingering spicy hints of wild cherry and hazelnut. Pair this wine with a variety of traditional Italian dishes such as ravioli, margherita pizza, or beef carpaccio. Its brightness and acidity also makes it a great companion for international favorites such as the classic hamburger.
