TASTING NOTES

Chianti Rufina is the smallest of the Chianti subregions, and is considered among those best designed to ensure the uniform quality of the wines produced, so much so that it was officially mentioned by Cosimo III in his Edict of 24 September 1716, which classified the wine produced in this area among the best four in Tuscany. An extremely youthful wine, like the age of the grapes from which it is made. At least 80% Sangiovese, complemented by Canaiolo and other grapes named in the specification. Vinification in stainless steel, malolactic fermentation in cement, followed by ageing for about a year in large French oak barrels. Its youth is reflected in the ruby red that animates the glass. The nose is a balance between flower and fruit, with the typical violet flanked by fresh undergrowth and cherry, with a slightly balsamic coating. The extremely delicate contribution of the wood keeps the red wine very drinkable and fresh, closing with a citrusy length. A bottle you can uncork with pleasure every day, pairing it with white meats and vegetable dishes. Read more Read less
LA CANTINA

Grignano

A point of reference for viticulture in the Chianti Rufina area, north-east of Florence, close to the Apennines, lies Fattoria Grignano. The history behind this place is very ancient: the earliest records date back to the Bronze Age, not to mention the remains of Etruscan and Roman buildings that can be seen here. Well aware of its historical and territorial relevance, the Inghirami family purchased these 600 hectares in the heart of Tuscany in 1972. The Grignano vineyards grow luxuriantly on clay and limestone soils, at an altitude of up to 400 metres above sea level. Together with excellent sun exposure and a microclimate consisting of climatic variations, these elements guarantee excellent maturation of the grapes, which are rich in aromatic notes. Fattoria Grignano wines undergo intense ageing processes: depending on the designation, they pass from oak barrels or French barriques to bottles, where they stay for a further six months. Fruit of the peculiarity of the place and the extreme care of its managers is an elegant wine that best represents the character and freshness of the Rufina grapes, Sangiovese above all. Name and address of producer/distributor: Grignano - Via di Grignano, 22 - 50065 Pontassieve (FI). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
