Chianti Rùfina


Chianti Rùfina is made on Sangiovese from a good slope facing south in the finest part of Rùfina. The wine is bottled after being stored for one year on the domain. Juicy, Sangiovese in a nutshell, slightly bitter and crispy acidity. A classic Chianti that combines firmness, fruit and style.


Chianti Rùfina er lavet på Sangiovese fra en god skråning vendt mod syd i den fineste del af Rùfina. Vinen tappes efter at være lagret et år på domænet. Saftmættet, Sangiovese i en nøddeskal, let bitter og sprød syre. En klassisk Chianti, som forener fasthed, frugt og stil.

The Etruscans planted wine here 500 BC, at the domain. The vineyard delivered from the 12th century wine to Florence's famous Santa Maria Nuova hospital and church. Since 1700, the domain belonged to the Counts Busi, who in 1927 was co-founder of Chianti's first consorzio for quality. Today, Count Giovanni Busi leads the winery, next to the honorable office of President of the Chianti Syndicate. The vineyard also makes some white wine at Gavignano, has 14 hectares planted with olives and 5 hectares of forest.

Etruskerne plantede vin her 500 f.v.t, på domænet. Vingården leverede fra 1100-tallet vinen til Firenze's berømte Santa Maria Nuova hospital og kirke. Siden 1700 har domænet tilhørt greverne Busi, som i 1927 var medstifter af Chianti's første consorzio for kvalitet. I dag leder grev Giovanni Busi vingården, ved siden af det ærefulde hverv som præsident for Chianti syndikatet. Vingården laver også lidt hvidvin på Gavignano, har 14 hektar beplantet med oliven samt 5 hektar skov.

General grape descriptions


Until relatively recently Sangiovese, Italy's most widely planted vine variety, was a grape in the wilderness. And whenever the name Sangiovese did appear on a label it was far from a guarantee of greatness. Rather the reverse. The most common wines that carried the name Sangiovese on the label were Sangiovese di Romagna, cheap Italian reds which were typically extremely light, pale, tart confections with little of interest to offer the wine lover.

Today, fine Sangiovese is an altogether nobler wine. It will be the product of much lower yields so that there is real concentration of colour and savour. As for the elusive flavour of pure Sangiovese, it ranges in a spectrum somewhere between mulberries, prunes, spice, tobacco, sometimes leather and chestnuts. It tends to be savoury rather than sweet, and if not fully ripe can smell distinctly farmyard-like.
