Santa Cristina Toscana
Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine shows floral and fruity aromas of medium intensity. On the palate, the wine is supple and flavorful and easy-drinking with a fruity finish and aftertaste.
Each grape variety was fermented separately. After de-stemming and a soft pressing, the wine fermented on its skins for a week in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation temperatures were held to a maximum of 77° Fahrenheit (25° centigrade). The wine was then racked and completed its malolactic fermentation during the winter. The aging, principally in stainless steel tanks, finished with the bottling of the wine ( at 12.5° alcohol), which began in late spring.
Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon.
