We are in one of the rare zones capable of producing a substantial 100% varietal Petit Verdot. The sparse bunches, constantly caressed by sea breezes, grow on the ochre-coloured gravel soils of Podere San Cristoforo, in the midst of olive trees and hundred year-old cork oaks. These elements yield a wine with rich fruit redolent of brushwood, whose straightforward vinification brings out all the characteristics of its terroir.


Tasting Notes

The San Cristoforo flows from the glass with superb clarity and precision. It is an immensely pleasurable wine that is very much defined by its dark fruit tones, thick extraction, and an impenetrable appearance. The mouthfeel is deep and penetrating: black cherry, pressed blackberry and dried currant emerge from the glass. Background tones of spice, leather and bitter chocolate fill in the rear. The balance and depth here are simply impeccable.

ABOUT Podere San Cristoforo

At Podere San Cristoforo we believe it’s important to seek the best agronomic practices in order to assure the highest quality grapes. The biodynamic method offers very simple tools that have been used for a long time in agriculture to make the earth more fertile and to make the vine more resistant. We are convinced that the quality of our wines comes from the respect of our soils and the care of our vineyards.
