Bright straw yellow with fine bubbles. The bouquet is fragrant and intensely fruity. It shows clean notes of apples, pears, and citrus, accompanied by slight hints of hawthorn, wisteria, and elder. Crisp, clean, and delicate with fine bubbles caressing the palate. Intense sensations of apples and peaches drive a pleasant aftertaste that is reminiscent of fruity and floral aromas. Ideal as an aperitif; it is very versatile as a food companion.
100% Prosecco (Glera). Ruffino was founded in 1877 by two cousins, Ilario and Leopoldo, in order to sell and export Tuscan wines and olive oils. The cousins set up warehousing, cellars, and a distribution center at Pontassieve, a picturesque town 12 miles east of Florence on the Sieve River. Ilario and Leopoldo purchased raw local wines and produced a limited amount themselves. They cellared, finished, bottled, and sold all of these wines under the Ruffino name. They also traveled the country to find finished wines that were suitable for extended aging.
