Antinori Chianti Superiore Santa Cristina 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Fruity, 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.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

The Sangiovese was a dark purple, it had hint of black cherry in the bouquet and on the mid pallet. We had bowtie pasta with mushrooms, asparagus, roasted pepper and onions. The wine went very well with this dish. The Sangiovese could have been drank alone or with cheese and crackers. I would buy this wine again; it is a good value for the dollar.

This is a wonderfully easy-to-drink red. I can't call it complex (it's not) but it's tasty and round and goes really well with inexpensive pasta sauce.

Excellent bottle especially for the price . . . Tannin lovers will not find much here to stick to their gums, but the intense rasberry, depth, and smoothe finish make this a very good choice over so so so many others! The 10% Merlot is just right and gives it the right balance. Highly recommend.
