Nice berry aroma with some other subtle notes of spice and even something vegetal. Medium body, smooth texture and flavor of tart cherries all the way to the finish. Very nice for $12.

A perfectly average Tuscan wine. A good table wine. I couldn't find any fault with it and enjoyed it but it did not exhibit significantly more character than a straw basket chianti. It's a good buy for the price.

This fruity, made-to-quaff Sangiovese has some earthy, mineral notes along with black fruit and full but non-aggressive tannins. Hints of cocoa and licorice add some complexity to what is otherwise a simple, fruity wine. In most ways it's similar to Beaujolais.

Farbe: intensives Rubinrot mit granatroten Nuancen. Die Nase bereits sehr nobel, mit Noten von roten Kirschen, Cassis, leichten Grasaromen, Moos, neuem Holz und weissem Pfeffer vom Syrah. Im Gaumen recht voll, weiche Tannine, feingliedrige Struktur mit viel Schmelz und ausgezeichneter Balance. Aromatisch, kräftig und feurig der Nachgeschmack.

External Review

This wine boasts aromas of saddle leather and black cherries, with just a hint of medical tape. On the palate, the flavors remain true, with cherries and leather predominating, and a slight creaminess. Finishes tart and a bit one-dimensionally fruity, but this is a nice entry-level Sangiovese with good varietal character.

External Review

A berry scented Sangiovese with hints of leather (itrsquo;s a good thing) and spice from under the Tuscan sun.

External Review

Crisp and fruity, with plenty of dried cherry character throughout. Light- to medium-bodied, with light tannins and a refreshing finish. Delicious now.

External Review

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 614 anniversary as wine makers in 1999. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit. That spirit comes through in this 2008 Santa Christina. A modern Tuscan blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, it has an intense aroma, with hints cherry and pleasant floral notes. On the palate it is well-rounded, harmonious, and rich.
