Overview

High on a hill in Tuscany, not far from Siena and Perugia, rises the historic town of Cortona. On one side it is flanked by an open plain, and on the other is the hill and the village.

One can enjoy the view of this beautiful panorama from the new Santa Cristina winery, which came into existence in 2006 with the goal of acknowledging and renewing the tradition of the wine known by the same name, 60 years after the release of its first vintage in 1946.

Winery Tasting Notes

Full red color with purplish highlights. The nose, pleasurable and intense, offers fruity notes of cherries, blackberries, and plums fused with aromas of vanilla and coffee. The palate is supple, enveloping, and full of fruit on the finish and aftertaste.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

One of the oldest winemaking firms in the world, Antinori first commenced producing wines in Tuscany and in and around Florence in 1385. They have since led the charge of Chianti producers in establishing the image of great Chianti and have contributed significantly to the Renaissance of Italian wines. The majority of the Antinori vineyards are located in Chianti Classico, where all efforts are centred on viticulture, with the aim of achieving Antinori's objectives to maximise the undiscovered potential in winemaking whilst safeguarding the wealth of tradition, culture and taste which gives Antinori wines their true identity.
