Production Notes

Each grape variety was fermented separately. After the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed, maceration on the skins took place in stainless steel vats over a period of approximately one week. During this phase, the wine completed alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature that did not exceed 25°C (77 °F). Malolactic fermentation was completed by the end of Autumn and the wine was aged for about 4 months.

Producer Information

The Antinori family released their first wine under the Santa Cristina name in 1946. Since then Santa Cristina has been a byword for quality and value in Tuscany – now more so than ever since the creation of a dedicated winery in 2006. The range now consists of reds and a rosé from Tuscany and whites from Umbria, so the winery’s location in Cortona, southern Tuscany, is ideal.
