Antinori Santa Cristina 2001
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.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
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.
External Reviews for Antinori Santa Cristina
Perhaps the greatest Solaia yet made, it rivals the outstanding 1985 the sensational, opaque blue/purple-colored 1997 exhibits a complex nose of cedar, cigar box, cassis, and subtle oak and reveals extraordinary concentration, a thick, viscous texture, yet no sense of heaviness or ponderousness. It is a thrilling Solaia to consume of the next two decades. If a first-growth Pauillac were made in Tuscany, this would be it!
A solid, muscular red from Tuscany, this is the greatest Solaia ever made. Dark ruby in color, with extremely ripe raisin and spice aromas. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of polished tannins and a long, long finish that's big and fruity Best after 2004.
