Santa Cristina 2009 wine review by (PB)
Gripping dark black cherry hue with intense Sangiovese bouquet of rich cherry, a touch of cocoa, daffodil and spice.
Palate--Artisinally made with rich varietal fruit, slightly sour pie cherry, and Tuscan all the way. Cabernet/Merlot lends a bit of the intense color I suspect.
One swallow and this wine continues to a nice finish.
This is a great wine for the price made by the master Antinori. I paid $9 and it is well worth half again as much.
Raise a glass to this classic Italian!
