Lovely Sangiovese-based red (with a splash of Merlot blended in) from the heart of Tuscany. Light- to medium-bodied, with bright red fruit, silky tannins and fresh acidity. Perfect for pizza, burgers and light pasta dishes.

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

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

A clean and fruity red, with ripe blackberry and citrus character. Lots of fresh fruit on the palate. A good Santa Cristina this year.

This beauty came on the scene back in 1946 as a Chianti Classico. However, in 1984, with the DOCG laws coming into the picture and Chianti requiring a longer oak aging period, Antinori decided to keep his ldquo;Chianti,rdquo; blend it with Merlot and begin a new path. Santa Cristina is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. On the nose you will find a very intense jammy bouquet of cranberries, strawberries and plums. In the mouth the fruit is lively and fresh with great acidity, spice and balanced tannins. A great wine for drinking with friends or enjoying with a nice weekend picnic!
