Sustainability Report FY 2021

21 RUFFINO | Sustainability Report FY 2021 The estate also vaunts several rows of Colorino, an old native grape variety that had been on the brink of extinction and was brought back to life with an interesting retrieval operation. In the late Nineties, a campaign got underway to salvage and promote Tuscany’s old indigenous grapes across all of the Ruffino estates. In particular, at Santedame, Colorino biotypes were chosen by massal selection, which sees the reproduction of an entire vineyard aimed at maintaining the maximum genetic variability within the same variety of vines. This technique continues to be used in approximately nine hectares in the Colorino vineyards on the estate. 2 Given that the production is residual in terms of turnover and quantity, therefore insignificant for the Group and its impact, the production of olive oil will not be included in the quantitative data stated in the Sustainability Report FY 2021 of the Ruffino Group. Santedame Organic, launching organic Chianti Classico in Sweden Swedish consumers have always been and continue to be pioneers of responsible consumption, which is why the Swedish market is a natural place in which to share our Ruffino Cares project with the launch of an organic Chianti Classico that fulfills the needs of our clients, who are mindful of products that respect the environment.
