La Solatìa estate is located in Monteriggioni, a well-known medieval village close to Siena. “Solatia” means “sunbathed”, which is a fitting description of this estate. The microclimate in these hills is dry and sunny.

Ruffino was one of the earliest producers to recognize Tuscany’s potential to produce world-class Chardonnay. The area north of Siena, where La Solatìa is located, enjoys all the traits needed to make uniquely expressive Tuscan white wines.

Pinot Grigio has also been planted on the estate, whose soil and microclimate result in structured and suave wines.

Sub-varieties of the French grape were planted to pair perfectly with the soil and microclimate.

The result is intensely aromatic and delicious grapes. The quality of the grapes grown in the estate’s vineyards is matched with the quality of the cellar, equipped with technology dedicated to the specific challenges of white wine production. A state-of-the-art fermentation cellar controls temperatures in all stages of the winemaking process to preserve the freshness of the grapes.

The distinctive soil composition on the La Solatia estate also has perfect Sangiovese growing conditions, which reveals upbeat expressions in the production of youthful, easy-drinking wines.
