Santedame - Chianti Classico DOCG - Tuscan Red Wine Ruffino

Chianti Classico DOCG


The story

The Santedame estate is situated in the famous Conca d’Oro (“Golden Basin”), ennobled by the centuries-old Madonna di Santedame chapel. The low yields and unique soil result in authentic, truly Tuscan wines. A lovely cypress woodland surrounds the estate.

Winemaking notes

The grapes are carefully selected before the fermentation takes place for about 10 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 28°C with pumpover and punchdown. Additional skin maceration continues for 8 days, followed by malolactic fermentation in concrete tanks.


Deep ruby red.


An enticing woody note introduces a cornucopia of red and black fruit, violets and graphite pencil.

Tasting profile
