The Grati family own a magnificent hill of vines on the western side of the Rufina valley just outside the town of Rufina where part of their cellars are located. Gianfranco, daughter, Cristiana, and son, Gualberto, are the current generation running the business. The Rufina valley makes sangiovese wines of real distinction, close in quality to those from the Classico district south of Florence, but the style is slightly different as the vines are cooled by the breezes which come down the Sieve valley. They represent great value which is why Grati's wine is chosen for The Society's Chianti Rufina. The family are also famous for the quality of their olive oil.

Tasting Notes

A classic Chianti with an opening of cherry and red fruit which is woven together by subtle mineral shadings and a delicate herbal touch. In the mid palate there are some dry tobacco tones. The wine is defined by its elegant lightness, a lip-smacking acidity and fine tannins.
