Santa Cristina White Blend Campogrande Orvieto Classico 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red colour. Fruity hints on the nose blend well with the toasty, chocolate and vanilla notes from ageing in wood. A complex, well-structured wine with smooth, stylish tannins.

Had this wine at Seattle's Barolo restaurant. Incredible wine - especially with the delicious steak we had. The wine is smooth with dark chocolate hints, yet it's spicy featuring lively pepper flavors that really complemented the meal.

Cristal-clear, straw yellow Franciacorta wine. Aromas of yeast and bread, fresh taste almost not acid and nice fruity side-taste arising at the end.

Very smooth and drinkable after an hour in the decanter. Great nose; good balance.

Fruitier than most Tuscan blends , probably owing to a bit of Syrah in the mix. Some nice tannins and mild acidity make it pleasant to drink, a good wine to enjoy with pasta and red sauce or grilled beef.

Not exactly sure what term to use - the ones I could think of were "thick" or "heavy." This wine was not light in the mouth. Great flavor. It was also well balanced; for as heavy as it was, it went down really smooth and easy. Also, deep dark color. Very nice wine.

One of the finest Super Tuscans I've had. A smooth, full-bodied wine with intense fruit and complex undertones. A phenomenal complement to a delicious steak dinner.

Klares und intensives rubinrot. Betonte Noten nach reifer schwarzer Frucht mit süßlichen Nuancen (Brombeere, Kirsche, Kakao, Vanille). Voll, kräftig, tief, ausgewogen mit delikaten und gut entwickelten Tanninen, anhaltender Abgang von ausgeprägter Persistenz.

"Highly Recommended" - Dark ruby in color showing beautiful aromas of crushed berries with hints of sultana raisin and spices. Full-bodied with a superrich powerful palate. This has layers of fruit and a fabulous finish. Decadent and delicious. Best after 2011. 3 700 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.
