The first vintage of Santa Cristina was produced in 1946 by Marchese Niccolò Antinori, Piero Antinori's father. 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 labour. The 2010 vintage is 60% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah. The wine is ruby red in color with purple highlights and its aromas are ample and intense with notes of red fruit, Ruby red color with an intense bouquet of cherry and raspberry fruits, along with hints of violet and tobacco. The flavours are soft and balanced, the finish characterized by suppleness of tannins and persistence of fruit, both of which contribute to its pleasurable, easy-drinking personality.
