Chianti Rufina, Italy
The Grati family have been growing grapes and olives in the Rufina hills for five generations. Their two estates, Vetrice and Galiga, cover an astounding 562 hectares, of which 100 hectares are under vine. Only 25 kilometers from Florence, the landscape is classically Tuscan, though considerably cooler than the plain. The wines are correspondingly fresh and elegant and offer remarkable value.
