Founded in 1877 by cousins Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino in the heart of Tuscany, in the village of Pontassieve near Florence, Ruffino today is synonymous with the worlds most beloved Tuscan wines.
Since the twentieth century, Ruffino has become a synonym for the Italian wine worldwide thanks to its successful Chianti. Ruffino was actually one of the first wineries to cross the ocean and establish itself as the Chianti of the Americans.
Classic wines such as Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale, Chianti Ruffino and Brunello di Montalcino have been the soul of Ruffinos portfolio. The foresight of the winery and the desire of new exciting challenges, has also led to the creation of imposing Supertuscans, such as Modus and other wines produced with local and international grape varieties, for instance Lumina Pinot Grigio and Prosecco Ruffino.
In 2011 Ruffino has been acquired by Constellation Brands, the worlds leading premium wine US company:a new large family embraces Ruffino and welcomes it among its brightest stars.
