Ruffino Sparkling Rosé is an elegant and stylish Italian sparkling wine made primarily from the Glera grape, which is used in all Prosecco wines, blended with Pinot Noir. The Glera grape gives the wine structure and body, and the Pinot Noir provides the wine with a beautiful rose hue. Its extra-dry style makes it easy to enjoy, and its bright fruit flavors and delicate bubbles make it perfect to enjoy as an apéritif or to pair with a variety of dishes. Ruffino Sparkling Rosé is fresh and fragrant with notes of strawberry and slight hints of rose petals.
In 1877 when cousins Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino embraced their passion for winemaking by establishing a small winery in the town of Pontassieve near Florence, the region already had a centuries-old tradition of growing exceptional wine grapes. Even so, the two Tuscan natives felt certain that much of the area’s greatness had yet to be revealed. Tuscany had been heaped with good fortune--mineral-laden soils, the cooling influence of the Mediterranean Sea, the dry summers that wine grapes favor. And all those luscious, sun-drenched hills.
