Grape Varieties :
Produced from meticulously selected Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc.
The S.Cristina Estate is located on the southern shores of Lake Garda from where the grapes are hand picked in the last days of September/beginning of October.
The gapes are fermented for approximately 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks with frequent pumping over to obtain great colour and fruit extraction from the the skins. The wine is then aged for 15 to 18 months in new and used barriques. After racking, the wine spends 2-3 months in stainless steel tanks and for a further 5-6 months in the bottle before being released on the market.
