Food Pairings for Antinori Santa Cristina
Typical "Italian style" Sangiovese. Smoked lunch meat on the nose. Its difficlt to pick up the cherry through the oak and suede but its there. Faint cherry and bitter dark chocolate finish.
A very great wine, great flavor & long tannin... it will be special if storage 6 months more... but not more than that.
With a grenache syrah blend this wine is amazingly smooth and feels like you are drinking a much more expensive bottle than it actually is. Normally less than 5 GBP.

...Musky wild aromas of raspberry game animal fur chicory and roast coffee. Silky-sweet very rich and full with firm minerality giving the wine an impression of energy. Finishes with building but fine tannins and lingering smoky flavor... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

...Pale yellow-gold. Reticent nose hints at caramel and vanilla. Fat and high-toned with superripe unctuous flavors of candied yellow fruits and honey. At once chewy and lively and hiding more than it s showing today. Very strong finish features subtle spicy persistence... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Warme Aromen von Waldbeeren, Vanille und Kakao. Am Gaumen weich, rund und samtig mit Eleganz und Harmonie.
Medium to full garnet. Enticing perfume of cedar, sweet incense, pipe tobacco and Indian spices. Warm and generous on the palate, with focused raspberry flavors framed by mouthcoating tannins. Dark berry fruit and minty overtones accompany the long finish.
Rich aromas of smoke, sage and ripe fruit follow to a full-bodied palate, with big, velvety, chewy tannins and a long, mouth puckering finish. This needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2005.
Deep, dark sensations of smoke, tar and scorched earth emerge from the powerful 2001 Solaia. This fresh, vibrant offering is packed with dense ripe fruit. This is an especially rich, heavy style of Solaia that lacks the subtlety and grace of the finest vintages. Still, in 2001 Solaia is a more complete wine than Tignanello. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
