On the palate the wine is smooth and well-balanced. The finish is characterized by gentle tannins and the persistent flavor of the grapes which make it so delicious and easy to drink.

Winemaking Note

Vinification took place separately for the different grape varietals. After destemming and a gentle pressing, the grapes underwent maceration for approximately 1 week in stainless steel tanks. During this phase, the wine completed alcoholic fermentation at a temperature not exceeding 25°C. The wine was then racked, and subsequently finished malolactic fermentation by the end of winter. The wine was aged partly in wood and partly in steel, which allowed it to be bottled beginning in late spring.

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.
