Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore 750ml

Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore

This wine is a deep ruby red colour with hints of purple. Its aromas of mature fruit, chocolate and vanilla are the result of aging in fine wood. Its well-balanced flavour, sweet tannins and flavourful finish linger pleasantly in the mouth.

Santa Cristina was originally introduced in 1946 as a Chianti Classico by Piero Antinori's father, Niccolò. However, with the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws - spearheaded by Piero Antinori- requiring lower vineyard yields, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich that they required more aging than this fruity fresh wine should have to maintain its style and character. Therefore, with the 1987 vintage Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, and with the 1994 vintage Antinori began including 10% Merlot to the blend to add soft, open fruit nuances to the wine.
