Chianti Rufina is a historic wine production area, one of the most important in Tuscany, located north-east of the city of Florence, on the slopes of the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines. Rufina is the smallest of the Chianti sub-skirts, despite this it is the third petticoat for production and also differs in the quality of its products.
