Did you know?

Chianti Ruffino flask wine was the first Chianti to leave Italy and was one of the first Italian wines to be exported in the same year that the company was founded. The new “straw” wrapping acknowledges tradition and cares about the environment as it consists of FSC certified paper string that is wound horizontally old-style around the flask.
