    Chianti Superiore DOCG 2017 - Santa Cristina

    The Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore DOCG from Santa Cristina has a ruby red colour with violet reflections in the glass, complex aromas unfold on the nose with notes of violets and cherries, beautifully framed by spicy notes. Dry and very soft on the palate, pleasantly full-bodied with velvety tannins, fruity and elegant. Long and tasty finish.

    Vinification of the Chianti Superiore DOCG from Santa Cristina

    The Sangiovese grapes for this Chianti Superiore were harvested in the first half of September. The vinification took place in two parts. Part of the grapes were macerated for 7 to 8 days at a maximum temperature of 25°C in order to extract the softest tannins possible and preserve the fruity aromas of the grapes. The majority of the harvested grapes were macerated for 10 to 12 days at 30°C, at the same time gently pouring over the skinned cap to increase the complexity of the taste. Malolactic fermentation and ageing of this Chianti Superiore takes place partly in stainless steel tanks, partly in oak barrels, only in December, over a year after the harvest the wine is bottled, and after a further rest period it is ready to be sold.

    Food pairings for the Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore DOCG

    Enjoy this fruity, velvety red wine with the traditional cuisine of Tuscany, from ham to pasta with strong sauces, beef steak, a tender rosé tagliata of beef, preparations with mushrooms, truffles and game, to Tuscan pecorino medium-ripe or spicy.
