Our Estates

POGGIO CASCIANO


Our Poggio Casciano estate is located in the Tuscan hills outside the village of Grassina, just a few miles from Florence. ‘Poggio' is the Tuscan word for a terraced hilltop, which perfectly describes the terrain. The name ‘Casciano' is said to derive from Cassius, a commander in the ancient Roman army who was granted large land holdings in the region.

At this estate, antiquity and modernity blend beautifully. A 14th century villa with classic Tuscan terra cotta and ochre exterior overlooks scenic vineyards and serves as Ruffino's main visitor center. The lovely gardens and courtyard complete the visitor experience.

Innovation also finds a place here. An underground barrique tunnel connects the villa with the newer winery buildings where we conduct extensive soil and climate research. This research has led to experimental plantings and blends, almost with an eye to ever-improving quality.
