Tenute Ruffino Società Agricola’s first Tuscan estate, Montemasso is situated a few miles from Poggio Casciano. The estate is located in the Chianti Classico wine region, south of Florence in the Greve municipality.
Montemasso Castle affords magnificent views of Florence and a history that dates back centuries. The main building is an impressive stone castle, which was originally an oratory built by the San Miniato friars and named for San Salvatore da Montemasso. The remaining tower belonging to the old monastery dates to the eleventh century.
The tower and the villa on the estate have now undergone a careful and reverent restoration in the period style. The Montemasso estate is also home to a pre-existing stone chamber where old vintages of the best Ruffino wines are cellared.
