Climate

2019

The 2018 vintage was distinguished by a slight delay in vine development which was then recovered during the phase of bud break. The successive phase of vegetative growth, flowering and bud set, were regular in nature, assisted by mild temperatures and by the abundant supply of ground water in the soil created by a rather rainy spring. Frequent rainfall up until the first days of July were followed by sunny weather, without, however, temperature peaks, up until mid-August. The last half of the month was characterized by occasional rain which fell during mostly fine weather and by temperatures which rose once again, starting in September.

To best conserve freshness and fragrance in the grapes, the picking of the Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Syrah crop began around August 20th and terminated in mid-September.

Winemaking

2019

Harvested grapes were brought to the cellar, destemmed and very gently pressed. The must was chilled to a temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) to favor natural settling and enhance clarity. After 48 hours, the must was transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature that did not exceed 15 °C (59 °F). The wine was aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 10 °C (50 °F) to preserve aromatic components up until bottling.

History

High on a Tuscan hillside, not far from Siena and Perugia, sits the historic town of Cortona.  A vast plain extends on one side and on the other, the hill and village. This is the captivating panorama surrounding the Santa Cristina winery, established in 2006 to strengthen and renew the tradition of crafting its eponymous wine, 60 years after its first vintage. Over time, Santa Cristina has become a reference point for winemaking experts as well as wine enthusiasts due to our commitment to achieving quality. The diligent care taken in vineyards and cellar management have always been our incentive to continue with innovation and research in exploring indigenous as well as international grape varieties. The resulting family of wines are different yet highly distinguishable for their unmistakable artisanal style, proof of the enduring connection between vineyards, terroir and man’s dedication to the land. Cipresseto is a rosé wine that is as delicate and harmonious as the Tuscan hillsides lined with rows of magnificent cypress trees. Its name and label both celebrate its completely Tuscan character.
