Our Estates

LA SOLATIA


The word ‘Solatia' is Italian for ‘bathed by the sun.' A perfect name for this estate just outside the famous medieval, walled village of Monteriggioni near Siena. The climate of this hilly region is warm and very sunny.

Ruffino was one of the first producers to recognize the potential for world-class Chardonnay from Tuscany. In particular, the northern Siena terroir of La Solatia possesses all the characteristics for producing uniquely expressive Tuscan white wines. The sub-varieties of French grapes on the estate have been planted to precisely match the soil and climate. The result is grapes with lovely and intense aromas.

The quality of fruit from the estate's vineyards is matched by the quality of the cellar, which is equipped with technology dedicated to the specific challenges of white wine production. A state-of-the-art fermentation cellar controls temperatures in all stages of the winemaking process to preserve the vineyard-fresh characteristics of the grapes.
