High on a hill in Tuscany, not far from Siena and Perugia, rises the historic town of Cortona.
On one side it is flanked by an open plain, and on the other is the hill and the village.
One can enjoy the view of this beautiful panorama from the new Santa Cristina winery, which came into existence in 2006 with the goal of acknowledging and renewing the tradition of the wine known by the same name, 60 years after the release of its first vintage in 1946.
