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.

Salt and pepper on red berry fruit along with turned soil on the nose. Dry on the palate. Nicely layered with black pepper, earth with dark red and black berry fruit. Smoke, maduro cigar wrapper. This will evolve nicely with more time. 88 pts. 9/1/12 at winery

Torrontés 2012 - 89 points, Wine Advocate/ It has an attractive bouquet, more complexity than its peers, and subtle, well-defined notes of grapefruit, candle wax and dried apricot. The palate is very well-balanced with very well-judged acidity. Harmonious and smooth with delicate dried apricot, lemon curd and white peach on the finish, this value Torrontes comes highly recommended.

Torrontes 2012 - International Wine Cellar, 89 points/ Pretty, floral aromas of white peach, orange zest and mint. Juicy, dry and penetrating, with good texture and intensity to its mint and floral flavors. Displays a hint of oiliness but this is essentially a brisk and energetic viognier. Finishes firm but not hard, with good length. Nicely done--and an excellent value

Since its debut vintage ten years ago, Bodegas Salentein has forged an enviable reputation worldwide for producing award-winning, premium quality wines. The estate’s winemaking team, led by the legendary José Galante, is one of the most revered in Argentina. Together, they strive to combine artistry, creativity and passion to craft wines that capture the finest terroirs of the Uco Valley in the famed Mendoza region. Killka is the latest creation from this very progressive winery and is produced using grapes cultivated on Salentein’s high-altitude vineyards in the Andes. It is named in honor of the Killka Gallery, the estate’s world-renowned and award-winning center for the arts, culture and gastronomy, which receives 20,000 visitors a year. One of the paintings from the gallery’s permanent collection, “Gente a La Espera de Una Cita de Amor or “People Searching for a Love Tryst” by Argentinean artist Antonio Segui (1934), is featured on the label. Killka is produced just steps away from the gallery in a uniquely cross-shape structure, which like all the buildings on this near 5000-acre private estate, was built by regional craftsmen, using local materials and incorporating indigenous architectural features. Production Area Valle de Uco - Tunuyán – Mendoza, Argentina Salentein’s high-elevation vineyards are located between 3,445 and 3,773 feet above sea level. The stony, alluvial soils enjoy excellent drainage. The weather conditions are also ideal, with few extreme variations in temperature. Vines (double-trellis) have adequate exposure to the sunlight, resulting in perfect ripening of sugars and polyphenols, while efficent drip irrigation produces optimum foliage development. Yields are kept low with canopy management. Grape Varieties 100% Torrontes Vinification Crushing and destemming is performed immediately after the grapes are harvested to preserve the excellent quality of raw materials. After crushing, the grape must undergoes cold maceration for 8 hours at 42°F. Alcohol fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures of 60-62 °F for 11 days. Color Pale gold Bouquet Very delicate aromas of orange peel and jasmine with hints of minerality Taste Floral notes accented by jasmine, lychee, and orange peel. Expressive, refreshing and crisp with soft, fragrant tropical fruit undertones. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Great with spicy foods and full-flavored cheeses
