2011 Santa Cristina Umbria IGT

The “classic” Santa Cristina (a red wine) was produced by Marquis Niccolò Antinoir, father of Marquis Piero Antinori, in 1946. At more than 60 years from its date of original production, the constant commitment to high quality has made Santa Cristina an important reference point in the overall panorama of Italian wine. This dedication to quality and the constant search for innovative ideas and techniques led, in 2009, to the creation of a family of products united not only by a common name but above all by a common philosophy of production, one based on the indissoluble link between the vineyard and human hands.

From the winemaker – “Straw yellow in color, the wine is intense and complex in aroma with notes of bergamots, orange flowers, and sweet spices such as cinnamon. On the palate it is soft and savory, with a return of the aromatic notes of the nose on the finish and aftertaste.”

A perfect oyster wine, this great Italian wine is also delicious with many vegetarian dishes. Cheeses such as chevre and other fresh cheeses, Brie and other semi-soft cheeses, Swiss, Gouda and other mild, firm cheeses.
