Ruffino Romitorio di Santedame Gran Selezione

Category: Tags: , Product ID: 2991


Grape Varieties: 90% Sangiovese & 10% Colorina

In the 1980s, Colorino, a traditional Tuscan grape variety, had almost disappeared. An old Colorino vineyard was discovered next to a medieval hermitage, known as a “Romitorio”, on the Santedame estate, which had been acquired recently by Ruffino at that time. It was a place where pilgrims rested on their way to Rome. The coincidence led to the development of the grape. This wine was created to celebrate the importance of research into Tuscan native grapes, to which Ruffino has always devoted energy and resources. It is a distinctive wine, made in limited quantities, which pays tribute to a glorious past and a bright future.


Color: Deep ruby red, black in the center.

Aroma: Enticing aromas of leather, cherries and plums, plus woody notes, vanilla and gentle spices.

Tasting Profile: Blueberry jam is the prelude to strong tannins that are well integrated with the solid body and dynamic structure. Intense, enigmatic and complex.

Full Tasting Notes: A wine of incredible depth, rich in well-integrated undertones, cohesive and sincere, an earnest expression of Sangiovese. Ageworthy.


Grilled and roasted meats, mature cheeses.
