Santa Cristina Le Maestrelle Antinori 2019
Fattoria Le Maestrelle is a modern red wine with a distinctive personality that expresses a strong connection to its native Tuscan territory in a contemporary interpretation.
The grapes were harvested at different times and fermented separately depending on the individual grape variety. This process allowed us to carry out fermentation and maceration operations specifically for each grape variety to enhance the aromatic compounds and soft tannins. Fermentation temperatures never exceed 25° C (77° F) and pumping takes place to ensure gentle extraction of delicate, supple tannins. After malolactic fermentation is completed at the end of October, the wine is left to age until late spring. Fattoria Le Maestrelle is bottled in early August 2021.
Le Maestrelle is a ruby red wine with purple hues. It is intense and complex on the nose with hints of vanilla and coffee in perfect balance with flavors of mint and cocoa typical of Merlot and red fruits typical of Sangiovese and Syrah.
