Centuries of history, tradition, culture, style, elegance, charming scenery and pure nature.

Tenute Ruffino

The Tuscan estates of Tenute Ruffino Società Agricola are uniquely magical. Nestled in beautiful scenery and surrounded by cultural sights, the estates exude history and tradition, elegance and charm, nature and wine knowledge. Noble villas, simple farmsteads, turreted castles: every estate has its own unique soundtrack in a harmonious exchange between people and wine.

When Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino established the winery in 1877, they realized that the secret to making the finest Tuscan wine was to take care of the vineyards best suited to the purpose.
Each of our vineyards are like precious gems that grow in the earth and our purpose is to look after the land. We honor tradition and history, while embracing modern winemaking technical to achieve the very best from each vintage.

Poggio Casciano

Poggio Casciano is situated in the Tuscan hills, just outside Grassina and a few miles from Florence. “Poggio” means “terrace on a hilltop” and is a fitting description of this estate. The name “Casciano”, on the other hand, seems to come from “Cassius”, a commodore in the Ancient Roman army who was given major land holdings locally.

Santedame

Santedame is located in the Castellina in Chianti municipality, in a distinctive area known as the “Conca d’Oro (Golden Basin) of Chianti Classico” due to the conformation of the land and the exceptional quality of the wine and oil produced here. The gentle slopes of the Conca d’Oro form a unique place where vines are naturally pushed to their extreme, resulting in minimal bunches of the highest quality.
