Antinori Toscana Santa Cristina 2012

Antinori Toscana Santa Cristina 750ML 2012    
Sku: 1234

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Other text
Santa Cristina was originally introduced in 1946 asa 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.
