Chianti Rufina's secrets

We will also tell you about the history of the estate, which dates back to before the 1700s and is linked to the Strozzi family. You will then explore our ancient cellars and learn about the requirements and special techniques used to create our wines. Afterwards, you can practice your wine tasting skills by discovering our organic Chianti Rufina DOCG and Riserva wines, accompanied by an assortment of local cold cuts and cheeses.
