    Producer: The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany's - arguably Italy's - pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland.

    Vineyard: The grapes for Santa Cristina come from selected vineyards in central Tuscany. The Merlot harvest took place first, with the first Sangiovese grapes being picked two to three weeks later.

    Winery: After destemming and gentle crushing, maceration in stainless steel vats lasted about one week. During this phase, the wine completed the alcoholic fermentation; it was then racked before it underwent malolactic fermentation. The juice was aged in oak for six months before blending and bottling.

    Taste: Intense fresh fruit aromas with pleasant floral hints. Well-structured, generous and soft on the palate, with lingering fruit notes on the finish.
