Antinori Toscana Santa Cristina IGT CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Tuscany Italy
One of the oldest winemaking firms in the world, Antinori first commenced production at Tuscany and Florence circa 1385. The majority of Antinori vineyards are located in Chianti Classico. With the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich, that they needed more ageing than the fresh and fruit driven Santa Cristina could bear, to maintain its character and style. Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, by including components of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah to the firmness of Sangiovese.

Parcels are racked and treated to malolactic, followed by several months ageing under the Santa Cristina cellars at Cortona. The finished wine is bottled after a light clarification and filtration.
