Santa Cristina is a popular brand offshoot of Antinori wines, produced in the town of Cortona, in Tuscany, Italy. The wine has been produced in the area (the location of the estate changed in 2006) since 1946. The wines are produced using traditional grapes and styles of red, white and rosé as well as Super Tuscan blends using international grapes. The estate also produces fortified dessert wine, grappa and olive oil.
Not bad for sangiovese.
External Reviews for Ambra Carmignano Santa Cristina In Pilli
Wine Tasting NotesFruity, crisp and fresh, this Tuscan red offers straight forward, accessible flavors and aromas for daily enjoyment. It crosses between old world and new; fruity yet with the leaner structure typical of Italian wines. Santa Cristina is crafted from a range of vineyards across the Tuscan hills, yielding a wine of ruby red color with an intense bouquet of cherry/berry fruits. Well structured and harmonious on the palate, with soft, sweet tannins.
