The ancient town of Cortona rises on a high hill not far from the cities of Siena and Perugia. On one side the wide plain, on the other side the hill and its hamlet. This is the view which can be enjoyed from the Santa Cristina cellars, constructed in 2006 to confirm and renew the tradition of the wine of the same name, first produced in the year 1946. Over time, Santa Cristina has become a reference point for connoisseurs, and not merely these consumers, thanks a constant commitment to high quality. The care and attention always given to both the vineyard work and the work in the cellar have been the stimulus for constant innovation and for measuring professional work and capacities with both native and international grape varieties. The result has been the creation of a family of wines, all different from one another but distinguished by the same artisan style, fruit of the indissoluble link between the vineyard, the terroir, and human contributions and input. The Chianti Superiore Santa Cristina bears a name which boasts almost a century of history, a
name which stands for round tannins, great freshness, and a strong to the territory in which it is produced. Chianti Superiore Santa Cristina is ruby red with purplish highlights. On the nose it is complex with fruity notes of morello cherries, dried plums and hay. Its palate is soft, mouth filling with velvety tannins and a long savory finish.
