The Tuscany region
Just 40 minutes away from Florence, Rufina and its surroundings are the land of Wine where history, traction and culture blend together providing visitors the embarrassment in their choice of route.
In the whole area of Chianti Rufina, from Colognole in Reggello from Londa to Pelago up to Pontassieve there are countless remains of the flow of time through villages, houses, villas, churches and farmhouses restored.
Beautiful castles, ancient parishes, fortizi remains of medieval shrines set in beautiful landscape contexts, towers, Renaissance-style villas, gardens, paintings, frescoes and even a windmill recently restored, in the municipality of Pontasieve give luster to a historical system-cultural spread all over the territory.
As early as the beginning of the 18th century, the de' Medici family concluded that the Rufina growing area possessed unique characteristics for the production of great wines. On the basis of that experience, Cosimo III de' Medici included that zone in his 1716 Bando dei Vini (Edict on Wines), along with those of Greve (today's Chianti Classico), Carmignano, and the hills of the upper Arezzo area.
With its 750 hectares of officially-registered vineyards in the communes of Rufina, Pontassieve, Pelago, Londa, and Dicomano, Chianti Rufina DOCG is still considered the smallest of the Chianti subzones, extending east from Florence along the right bank of the Arno river and then rising towards the north along both banks of the Arno's main tributary, the Sieve.
The hills flanking the two rivers become more and more rugged as the land ascends north-east, until it finally reaches the ridges of the Apennines. The mountains strongly influence the local weather: not only are the average temperatures and air humidity different from those in other areas of Chianti (lower and higher, respectively), but even more crucially, the temperature ranges between day and night are more dramatic.
Rufina's distinctive weather and soils mean that its wines are more recognisable and appreciated for the innate elegance of their bouquet and overall balance, rather than for their power and concentration.
In addition to the exceptional winegrowing qualities of this small jewel in a corner in Tuscany, set between the city of Florence to the west and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines to the east, and in addition to its other iconic product, extravirgin olive oil, which achieves in these hills some of its highest-possible levels of expressiveness, the Rufina area is admired worldwide for its natural beauties, its history, its artistic and cultural heritage, and its gastronomic excellence. Castles, villas, country churches, rural shrines, historic gardens, farms, wineries, and traditional restaurants dot every hill and valley in Chianti Rufina and constitute together a magnificent destination and a source of delight for visitors of all tastes.
From San Godenzo to Pelago, from the rural churches of Pomino to the Castello del Trebbio (famous for the plot woven by the ancient de' Pazzi family), the intense impressions aroused by these sites are the fruit of our senses: the palate, the eyes, our sense of smell, each and all of them conveying together a journey of discovery whose essence is not a visit but a way of living
