SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

History, tradition and quality. These are the first words that come to mind when talking about Antinori, one of the oldest families of Tuscan and Italian wine. A short distance from the historic city of Orvieto is Castello della Sala, the family-owned Umbrian estate. A unique microclimate, characterised by excellent temperature fluctuations and a subsoil rich in clay seepage that allows the production of white wines with excellent structure and minerality. 1985 saw the birth of the first bottle of Cervaro della Sala, a White Umbrian wine made from Chardonnay grapes with an addition of Grechetto. A wine designed to age over time, it was the first Italian white wine to undergo malolactic fermentation and ageing in barriques for about 6 months, then resting in the bottle for 12 months, in the castle's historic cellars. Elegant and complex, Cervaro della Sala displays an intense straw yellow colour with golden hues in the glass. On the nose it reveals notes of tropical fruit and spices, followed by buttery and vanilla sensations. On the palate it is rich and mineral, characterised by notes of hazelnut. Long and persistent, it has high ageing potential. Wine for a great occasion, to be shared together with loved ones. It is at its best when paired with fine cheeses or truffle based dishes.

THE WINERY

Castello della Sala

On the slopes of the Umbrian Apennines where time seems to stand still, shrouded in an aura of charm and mystery, stands the Castello della Sala. This imposing medieval manor, built in 1350, now belongs to the Antinori family, which has been taking care of the production of one of the best Umbrian wines with ambition and care since 1979. Not far from the border with Tuscany and the iconic city of Orvieto, the 500 hectares of Antinori soils, rich in clay and minerals, are criss-crossed by the river Paglia and long rows of vines of different varieties: Chardonnay, Grechetto, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and many others. Under the guidance of agronomist Renzo Cotarella, the winery works tirelessly in the search for a white wine capable of expressing itself over the years and evolving over time, asserting itself through character and personality. In Castello della Sala's modern, recently updated wine cellar, each grape is treated with the utmost respect for the raw material, and then transferred to the estate's historic refining cellars, dating back to the 14th century, where the ageing process takes its course. Name and address of producer/distributor: Castello della Sala - Località Sala, 05016 Ficulle TR. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
