Vintage 2020

Santa Cristina Toscana shows a ruby red colour with purple highlights. On the nose, delicate notes of cherries and ripe red fruit, typical of Sangiovese and Syrah, mingle with the characteristic balsamic sensations of Merlot. The palate is ample and supple and the finish and aftertaste are fruity.

Varietal blend: Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Syrah

Santa Cristina was originally introduced in 1946 as a Chianti Classico by Piero Antinori's father, Niccolò. However, with the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws - spearheaded by Piero Antinori- requiring lower vineyard yields, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich that they required more aging than this fruity fresh wine should have to maintain its style and character. Therefore, with the 1987 vintage Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, and with the 1994 vintage Antinori began including 10% Merlot to the blend to add soft, open fruit nuances to the wine.

    Smooth and soft

    A very lovely smooth and soft taste. Very much like a merlot but also light and fruity.

    Highly Drinkable and Satisfying Wine

    Posted by Chris Cameron on 16th May 2018

    I have only recently discovered this wine at a restaurant and I am so glad that I did. The wine presents as a very pleasant accompaniment to most dishes, particularly typical Italian cuisine, it is light, but not too Merlot light and much easier drinking than the heavier tannin rich shiraz and cabernet sauvignon varieties of which I have become less found. A couple of trips to France sampling the lighter reds and the onset of age (68yrs) has probably influenced my preferences. In any event this is a wine that I enjoy very much and Our Cellar does a great job in delivering it promptly and at a very fair price.
