"Black cherry, tobacco and black pepper notes mingle in this firm red, bolstered by integrated tannins, with a long finish. A touch astringent now, but this should come together soon. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2015 through 2022." - Wine Spectator

Santa Cristina was originally introduced in 1946 asa Chianti Classico by Piero Antinori's father, Niccolò. However, with the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws - spearheaded by Piero Antinori- requiring lower vineyard yields, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich that they required more aging than this fruity fresh wine should have to maintain its style and character. Therefore, with the 1987 vintage Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, and with the 1994 vintage Antinori began including 10% Merlot to the blend to add soft, open fruit nuances to the wine.
