Ruffino's first Tuscan estate, Montemasso offers enchanting views of Florence and, like so much of Tuscany, has a history that reaches back through the centuries. The scenic estate's main building is an imposing stone castle, originally an oratory built by monks from San Miniato and dedicated to San Salvatore da Montemasso.
The tower that remains from the ancient monastery dates to the 11th century. Today, that tower and the estate's villa have been lovingly restored with careful attention being paid to period details. Montemasso also houses an historical stone cellar where old vintages of Ruffino's finest wines are aged.
