Our Gretole estate features a charming stone villa and has 272 acres of vineyards almost entirely dedicated to producing Ruffino's most emblematic wine: Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico Riserva.
The word ‘gretole' refers to the brittle galestro rock—the classic grayish rock of Chianti Classico that lends a distinctive taste profile to Sangiovese and other grape varieties.
705, of which 272 acres are vineyards
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
Rolling hills; rocky and arid soil rich in marl and galestro; stable climate patterns with long, rather dry summers for ideal maturation of fruit year after year
