Chianti Rufina 2021


The Grignano estate was first personal property of Caterina De Medici (1519-1589). In the 1970s, the estate passed into the hands of the Inghirami family, one of the best in Italian textile-fashion, who transformed it into a historic wine and olive oil producing company with 600 hectares of land, of which 50 are cultivated with vineyards, 200 with olive groves, 100 with arable land and 250 with forest.

Tasting Notes

Lively black garnet in color, intense notes of brambly berry fruits followed by green notes. Medium bodied on the palate with bright sour cherry and berry fruit. Clean finish.

Food Pairing

A very food friendly wine that pairs well with red-sauced pasta dishes, lasagna, grilled meats or light stews.
