The grapes for Ruffino IL Ducale Toscana IGT come from the most prestigious wine-growing regions of Tuscany, including Ruffino's estate vineyards. After they ferment the wine in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for eight days, it receives extended grape skin contact for another eight to 10 days for deep color and concentrated flavors. Then it's aged for 12 months in oak casks of first, second and third use.
