bottega and enoteca ruffino
A selection of Tuscany’s finest specialty foods takes center stage at Ruffino’s grocery store. Cheeses, cured meats, fruit preserves and vegetable chutneys, honey, prized truffles, and savory and sweet cookies arrive at the Bottega from the surrounding hills. The extra-virgin olive oil and wines are produced by Ruffino. More than anything else, the Bottega is a treasure trove of Ruffino wines. In addition to all Ruffino wines, here you find large formats, older vintages and all the labels that have shaped Italy’s winemaking history such as Riserva Ducale, Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, as well as lovingly cherished rare limited editions. Elegant “Vivere di Gusto” gift boxes are a unique opportunity to give stylish and tasteful gifts.
