Cervaro della sala

Appellation: Umbria IGT

Blend: Chardonnay, Grechetto

Vintage: 2014

Marchesi Antinori Santa Cristina Bianco, Umbria IGT, Umbria, Italy


Appellation: Umbria IGT


Blend: Grechetto, Procanico, Viognier


Vintage: 2017


Tasting note: Santa Cristina Bianco is a straw yellow in color. The nose is dominated by the intensely fruity notes of bananas and citrus fruit typical of Grechetto and Procanico, and by candied fruit, characteristic of Viognier as a variety. The palate is balanced, savory, and with a good freshness and softness along with the fruity notes which recall the aromas felt on the nose.
