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

Winery: The different grape varieties were vinified separately. 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 wine was aged partly in oak and partly in stainless steel 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.
