Bianco. Santa Cristina 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Ein moderner, trockener Rotwein von rubinroter Farbe mit leichten Granatreflexen. In der Nase eine gute Komplexität, betont fruchtig und von würzigen Noten untermalt. Am Gaumen weich, harmonisch und ausgewogen. Die weichen Tannine und der reichhaltige Abgang runden diesen eleganten Wein ab.

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

Um yeah....the aroma is quite clearly cannibus sativa...that´s a first for wine! Really hard to get past that smell but there is also a touch of cut grass in there as well. Over time, fresh kiwiw and pineapple flavors come through. Really bright, fresh squeezed lemon and custard flavors refresh the palate and you almost feel surrounded by the golden rays of sunshine that hit the grapes when they were harvested. Really refreshing wine for a hot day. Pair with a fresh summer salad of greens and a pear vinagrette.

One of the major and largest vine growing businesses in Europe, Frescobaldi owns nine estates covering over 1,000 ha of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for fine wines. Directly manager by its family members, Frescobaldi produces almost 7 million bottles and the wines are exported to over 60 countries throughout the world. The Frescobaldi name goes back many centuries into the history of art, culture, trade and finance of Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. From the second half of the last century, the Frescobaldi’s were keen players in the development of Tuscan vine-growing. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet Franc 10%, Sangiovese 10% Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGT Maker : Nicolò D'Afflitto Notes : The rich nose is followed by crisp minty nuances and a spicy mélange of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, which concludes with a touch of slaty minerality. The palate is structured with firm but fine tannins. Serve : At room temperature with hare, game, wild boar, roast beef and pork and mature cheese. ABV : 13.50%

The Duca di Castelmonte label is given to the still wines of the Carlo Pellegrino, the world-famous Sicilian Marsala producer. In the 1970s the company was the first to market a range of wines produced from native grape varietals and they have continued to seek the individualism and character of the true wines of Sicily. This strategy is now paying dividends, as customers look to discover more of the indigenous varietals of Italy. What those customers are also finding is that Sicilian wines offer fantastic value for money. Grapes : Nero d’Avola 100% Region : Italy / Sicily / Sicilia IGP Maker : Gaspare Catalano Notes : Richly flavoured with ripe berry fruit notes, balanced with a lingering finish Serve : At room temperature with rich red meat dishes and cheese. ABV : 13%

Best Buys: International New Releases/ Earthy and spicy with high-toned cherry flavors, this feels traditional and light on the finish, leaving only a lingering silkiness.

Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Collavinis winery is located near Udine in the Collio region (a strip of hills against the Slovenian border). This region was only reunited with Italy after the First World War and is reputed to have one of Europe’s most priviledged micro-climates for white wines which dominate the region. Collavini were among the first to vinify Ribolla Gialla (an ancient local variety) and to implement new winemaking technologies. The winery prides itself on its clean, modern style wines while still retaining the traditions and grape varieties native to the area. Grapes : Ribolla Gialla 100% Region : Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia / Collio DOC Maker : Walter Bergnach Notes : A medium bodied wine that is distinctive, dry and lemony with soft floral aromas from forest plants such as acacia, oak and birch. Serve : Chilled to accompany starters, soups, fish casseroles and shell fish. ABV : 13.00%
