Santa Cristina Antinori Sangiovese is a medium bodied wine. The color is ruby and the fragrance is more like wild flowers with a berry and herb aroma. The initial palate is cherry, a little tart though, followed by earthy overtones and chewy raisin. I only gave it three stars, because, I have had better vintages from Santa Cristina. Overall it finishes well and as Tuscan wines go, it is affordable at the listed price and perfect for your week day spaghetti and meatballs supper.
