Overview

Orvieto DOC Classico

The ORVIETO DOC appellation was given official recognition in the year 1971, and in the following four decades has had an exceptional growth both in terms of quality and of the quantities produced: Orvieto is, today, one of Italy’s most widely known white wines on a worldwide basis and represents, on its own, approximately three fourths of all the appellation wine produced in the Umbria region of Italy. The appellation itself is divided into two parts: Orvieto Classico, produced in the area around the bluff of tufaceous rock on which the city of Orvieto is perched and Orvieto, from areas to the north and south of the classic zone. The geological components of the territory (of volcanic origin), together with with favorable and quite individual micro-climate which distinguishes the area of the Paglia and lower Tiber rivers, are the basis of the oenological success which, since time immemorial, is an integral part of the history of the city. It is no accident that Orvieto is one of the very few cities of the world whose name is synonymous with that of the wine of its surrounding territory.

Winery Profile

The first vintage of Santa Cristina was produced in 1946 by Marquis Niccolò Antinori. Over time, Santa Cristina has become a point of reference for experts in the field of wine making and for others, thanks to a constant commitment to quality. The attention which has continuously been given to the vineyards and the work carried out in the wine cellars have been the stimulus for constant innovation. They have enabled the winery to cultivate both native and international varietals, thereby creating a family of products which are different, yet distinguished by the same style. This combination results from an indissoluble bond between the vineyard, the land, and human labor. Santa Cristina White, Santa Cristina Rosé, and Santa Cristina Le Maestrelle stand side by side with the classic Santa Cristina, along with Campogrande and Cipresseto, which, together with the specialties such as Santa Cristina Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Donato, and Santa Cristina Grappa, represent a new step in a long wine-making tradition.
