Description 1 of 1


Chianti Rufina is a small subzone of Chianti in Tuscany, Italy. There are seven subzones defining the vineyard boundaries within Chianti, and the wines of Rufina show their own unique characteristics due to its microclimate and soil types. It benefits from a long growing season and elevated landscape, which makes for excellent acid balance in the grapes. 
Instead of the bold and racy Classicos or Colli Senesis, Chianti Rufina tends to be more subdued, delicate, aromatic and fruit-driven, with ageworthy potential. 
For more information on Chianti, its history and production, please see Chianti.
