If you’re looking to drink Chianti Rufina, you may as well make it Travignoli: located in Pelago, just east of Florence, the estate’s high-altitude vineyards and southern exposure have borne fruit for winemakers since the twelfth century. Named from the Italian “tra” (among) and “vigne” (vines), has been operated by the noble Busi family since the 1700s. Count Giovanni Busi has been chief proprietor of Travignoli for twenty years and recently served as president of the Chianti Rufina consortium. While Chianti Rufina stands proudly as the company’s flagship wine, look out also for Travignoli’s popular Chardonnay-based blend Gavignano, the barrique-aged Sangiovese-Cabernet Tegolaia and the luscious Vin Santo, Tuscany’s most celebrated dessert wine.
