The Chianti Rufina is a historical name of Tuscany. Initially named Pomino, it was recognized with the famous edict of the Grand Duke of Toscani Cosmimo the III de’Medici in 1716, to protect the areas of wine production. The area of production of Chianti Rufina is north-east of the city of Florence, close to the Tuscan-Romagnan Appenins and the municipalities where it is possible to produce Chianti Rufina are Pontassieve, Rufina, Londa, Pelago and Dicomano. Differently than the Classical Chianti, the climate is cooler, thanks to the altitude of at least 400 meters and temperature range is greater, being close to the mountains and not in the middle of the hills. The Chianti Rufina in 1967 is recognized as a wine of controlled denomination DOC and then in 1984 as a wine of denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin DOCG. Today it represents the smallest denomination of Chianti with about 750 hectares of vineyard.
