The Chianti Rufina in 1967 obtained the controlled denomination of wine DOC recognition and then in 1984 the status of controlled and guaranteed origin denomination DOCG. Today is the smallest denomination of Chianti with about 750 hectares of vineyards.
Given the unique characteristics of the area, in the seventies Luigi Veronelli launched the challenge / invitation to abandon the Chianti name to create a separate and unique name "Rufina" that unfortunately was never collected.”
