One of the oldest winemaking firms in the world, Antinori first commenced producing wines in and around Tuscany and around Florence in 1385. They acquired the prestigious Badia di Passignano vineyards in 1987. The estate Abbey was once home to the founder of the Vallombrosano order and is still owned by the monks, although Antinori make shrewd use of the beautiful cellars. Antinori have since led the resurgence of interest in the elegant Sangiovese of Chianti Classico and contributed significantly to the broader renaissance of Italian wines.

The Badia a Passignano vineyards near Sambuca Val di Pesa are planted to the best Sangiovese clones taken from very old vineyards at Tignanello. After destemming and a soft crush, grapes are treated to a maceration where indigenous yeasts activate fermentation. After a delicate pumpover and delestage, the fermented must remains on skins for a fortnight. At the end of year, batches spontaneously complete malolactic in a selection of new and seasoned French and Hungarian oak barriques. Component wines are then assembled and returned to barriques for a year's ageing. Barrels are then sampled before the finest are bottled under the Badia di Passignano label and aged for a further year.

One of the oldest winemaking firms in the world, Antinori first commenced production at Tuscany and Florence circa 1385. The majority of Antinori vineyards are located in Chianti Classico. With the passage of the 1984 DOCG laws, Chianti Classico grapes became so complex and rich, that they needed more ageing than the fresh and fruit driven Santa Cristina could bear, to maintain its character and style. Santa Cristina moved away from the Chianti Classico designation, by including components of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah to the firmness of Sangiovese.

Good spring temperatures and the availability of water encourage the sprouting of grape. Summer rains maintain vegetative equilibrium throughout the hotter months leading to veraison and ripening. Fluctuations in temperatures between day and night allow grapes to ripen fully, achieving a harvest of healthy fruit in excellent condition. Grapes are destemmed and gently pressed, the must is cooled to 10C for a natural clarification, racked to fermenters and vinified at temperatures below 18C . The wine was then kept at a temperature of 10C until the moment of bottling. This procedure allows the preservation of vibrant, complex characters and overall freshness.
 
Straw yellow colour, hues of lime green. Bouquet opens with luscious fruity, floral aromas reminiscent of lemon zest, pineapple, banana and white flowers. Soft and well balanced on the palate, full bodied and luscious, soft and fresh, with lingering flavours of fresh citrus on the finish.
