Il Clima

In 2019, vine development was influenced by spring weather that was initially dry and later became cool and rainy; these conditions caused a delay of the vines’ vegetative growth cycle pushing flowering back two weeks behind seasonal averages. Summer weather was hot with well-distributed rainfall during the entire season. At harvest time, the grapes had a good balance between acidity and sugar levels and excellent aromatic potential thanks to significant variations between day and nighttime temperatures during the final weeks of ripening.

La Vinificazione

Harvested grapes were brought to the cellar where two distinct fermentation processes were performed; part of the grapes underwent maceration on the skins for 7-8 days at a maximum temperature of 25 °C (77 °F) to enhance the extraction of soft tannins and preserve fruity aromas. The other more substantial part underwent longer maceration, 10-12 days, at a temperature of 30 °C (86 °F) with gentle pump overs to increase the intensity of the grapes’ flavor profile. Malolactic fermentation took place in the month of November and the wine was then aged in stainless steel vats. Chianti Superiore Santa Cristina was bottled starting mid-April 2021.

Note degustative

Harvesting took place about ten days later than in 2018; international varieties were picked first starting in mid to late September and wrapped up with Sangiovese that was harvested up until mid-October.
