The group "Tenimenti Ruffino S.R.L." consists of a number of wineries, cellars and a trading house. The head office is located in the town of Pontassieve, east of Florence in Tuscany. The company was founded in 1877 by Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino. In 1913 the company was acquired by Italo and Francesco Folonari. Subsequently, the estate grew enormously and today comprises around 15 wineries. These include Borgo Conventi in Friuli, as well as the Tuscan estates of Greppone Mazzi, Gretole, La Solatia, Lodola Nuova, Montemasso, Poggio Casciano and Santedame. The total area with other estates is 1,500 hectares, of which 600 hectares are under vines. Today the company is managed by Luigi and Adolfo Folonari

In the year 2000 the property is divided. The former family estate Nozzole near Greve is now owned by Ambrogio Folinari. 40% of Ruffino S.R.L. is owned by the US Constellation Brands group. Among the premium wines of the house are, above all, different variants of the Chianti-Classico from the estates Montemasso, Gretole and Santedame. The famous "Ducale" is blended from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The "Riserva Ducale Tradizionale" has been produced for over 100 years, the "Riserva Ducale Oro", produced since 1946, comes from the best locations. Other wines are "Chianti Classico Santedame" and "Chianti Ruffino".

The product range of the house includes many wines. These are for example the IGT wines "Anteprima" (Sangiovese, Gamay), "Casalta" (Pinot Grigio), "Libaio" (Chardonnay), "Nero del Tondo" (Pinot Nero), "Romitorio di Santedame" (Prugnolo Gentile, Colorino) and "Torgaio" (Sangiovese). Furthermore the DOC wines Collio Goriziano, Friuli Isonzo, Orvieto Classico, Rosso di Montepulciano, as well as the DOCG wine Vernaccia di San Gimignano are produced. The Greppone Mazzi estate in Montalcino covers 157 hectares, of which 10 are vineyards. Here the DOCG Brunello di Montalcino is produced from 100% Sangiovese. The Riserva matures for 40 months in the barrel and another eight months in the bottle. The Lodola Nuova estate is located near the small town of Valiano, south of Siena, and covers 159 hectares, 87 of which are vineyards. The DOCG Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced here. It is mainly blended from Sangiovese with a small percentage of Merlot and matures for 24 months in barrels, 30 months in the case of the Riserva. Of this, 320,000 bottles are produced annually. The total annual production of the house is about 16 million bottles of wine. Grappa and olive oil are also produced.
