Great Tuscan classics, wines like Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro, which recently received the “3 bicchieri” accolade from food and wine magazine Gambero Rosso, and Brunello di Montalcino Greppone Mazzi have always been at the heart of Ruffino’s production. At the same time, the willingness to take on new challenges has resulted in the creation of striking SuperTuscans, including the multi-award-winning Modus, and the acquisition of two fully organic Veneto estates, where Ruffino produces Prosecco.
Protecting the environment and its biodiversity through the use of sustainable practices in the vineyard and cellar management have become fundamental factors for Ruffino. In 2021, 40.7% of the vineyards owned by Ruffino will be organically farmed and many practices have been established to reduce the company’s environmental impact, such as lowering greenhouse gas emissions, waste management aimed at recycling over 85% of waste materials, and the increased use of energy from renewable sources. The overarching brand Ruffino Cares underpins all of these environmental sustainability projects, in addition to the promotion of responsible drinking, a concept centred on Mediterranean civilization and lifestyle through targeted and impactful campaigns.
