Food Pairings for Antinori Santa Cristina Toscana Red
Love this Paso Rhone blend. Great balance, some interesting fruit layers and nice acidity. On the palate there's lemon cream pie, honeysuckle and hints of fig.
Excellent rose from Tablas Creek. TC is one of my favorite Rhone varietal winemakers out of Paso Robles and this is right up there with their other offerings. Slight strawberry, light rhubarb, some watermelon and a touch of bright cherry sit well with the medium acidity.
I am not an expert, but I know what I like. I always have my eye out for Moscato D'Asti, as it is my favorite. I like sweet wines. I found this at a very good price ($7.49 on Sale, regularly $14.99) at Walgreen's in Wake Forest, NC. On opening it, I thought I might not like it, as the fragrance wafting up as I opened it was not appetizing. The first glass smelled rather strange, but as it sat, it lost the strong scent. I am glad I stuck with it. It is pretty special- lovely tart that plays against the sweet grape, apple, pear, apricots, and a faint floral something. It is what I think is a medium body, which i like. It is very smooth, easy to drink and mellows a tad as it goes from chilled to just cool. I think it gets richer and more complex in flavors as it starts to warm up from just chilled to just cool. Not as bubbly as some others, but it does not distract from this wine in the least. I had some of this wine with a dinner of chicken in a very light terriaki/honey glaze; green beans tossed in a good olive oil, a drop or two of sesame oil and a light sprinkle of lemon-pepper, and a nice chewy rustic white loaf of bread with butter/olive oil/garlic/feta sprinkled on cut bread and warmed- I think it was a good pairing. I tried some with Goat cheese with cranberry and cinnamon- fantastic! This Moscato is complex enough and lingers long enough to hold it's own and play against the flavors of foods. Mine had 2012 production date.
External Reviews for Antinori Santa Cristina Toscana Red
Rose from Tavel is one of the few rose wines that can improve in the bottle, but this one is completely ready to please right away.Limestone and minerals mix with fresh berries on the nose.Nice density on the palate with balanced spicy white pepper, strawberry and cherry notes.Juicy and tense.
Good colour with hints of gold. The nose develops a bouquet of crystallised citrus with almond notes. The taste is full and generous, bringing together finesse and elegance, with a fine finish. Can be enjoyed as an aperitif wine, with a Berry regional potato galette, with fish cooked in sauce, and white meat; it pairs perfectly with Asian dishes, sweet and sour... and whatever else inspires you. - Winery
Dieser Wein besticht durch sein facettenreiches und würziges Bouquet. Ein absoluter Liebhaberwein.
The wine offers lush red fruit with surprising depth, well balanced, and low in acidity.
A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbott's estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality
Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
Brilliant, yellow-green in color; on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, in the mouth full and harmonious and soft. 40% Procanico, 40% Grechetto, 15% Verdello, 5% Drupeggio & Malvasia
