Food Pairings for Santa Cristina Bianco Umbria Antinori
'Wine of the Week,' Las Vegas Review-Journal: Grechetto 60%, Procanico 40%... fine, pale almost clear citrine-yellow color... highly aromatic... with lots of zippy kiwi, pomelo and general citrus zest; also white currants, crushed cloudberries, hints of honeysuckle and orange blossom, then zucchini flowers and crushed fine granite for minerality... loads of zesty pears, citrus rind, Granny Smith apples and excellent acidity to carry that backbone in the wine right through the relatively soft and supple midpalate into a finish that is chock-full of vibrant white currants, stone fruit and kiwi crush with just a touch of minerality. It is entirely clean and crisp to the end... a fabulous alternative to pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc. Drink it with sauteed shrimp scampi or a seafood salad. The wine is good now through 2014.
