History Santedame Chianti Classico DOCG is an elegant, classically styled Chianti Classico from Ruffino’s Santedame Estate. This estate is nestled in the fabled Golden Basin, or Conca d’Oro, where yields are naturally low, and flavors are rich and concentrated. Santedame is an authentic, smooth, and very pleasing estate wine produced in small quantities without compromise—a true expression of the terroir.
