WIneries, wine cellars and vineyards for sale in Chianti Rufina, Tuscany

Chianti Rufina DOCG is a wine region located in Tuscany. It covers an area of about 1,200 hectares, and it is situated in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains, east of Florence. The soil in the area is rich in minerals, and the climate is ideal for wine production, with hot summers and cool nights. Chianti Rufina DOCG is known for producing Sangiovese-based wines, which are full-bodied and have a rich aroma.

 

The production of wine in the Chianti Rufina area dates back to the Etruscan period, but it was during the Middle Ages that the production of Chianti Rufina began to thrive. The wine was so popular that it became known as the "wine of the popes" and was often served at the Vatican. In the 18th century, the Grand Duke of Tuscany recognized the quality of the wine and established some of the first wine laws in the world, designating the Chianti Rufina area as a wine region.

 

The Chianti Rufina DOCG was established in 1984 and is one of the smallest DOCGs in Italy. To qualify for the DOCG status, the wine must be made from at least 75% Sangiovese grapes, with other permitted grapes including Canaiolo, Colorino, and Trebbiano. The wine must be aged for a minimum of 24 months, with at least 3 months in the bottle. Chianti Rufina DOCG is known for its deep ruby color, intense aroma of cherries and violets, and complex flavors of fruit and spices.
