Cervaro della Sala Umbria IGT 2020 - Antinori Castello della Sala

For many enthusiasts, Antinori's Cervaro dell' Sala is considered an iconic wine. An Umbrian white of great personality, capable of accompanying the most important occasions with class. The result of a careful selection of Chardonnay grapes and a small part of Grechetto grapes, this wine is the result of a delicate process that takes place in a modern winery designed to make the most of the principle of gravity, without resorting to invasive mechanical interventions. Made even richer by a moderate skin maceration, an intelligent use of barriques and a malolactic fermentation carried out entirely before bottling, Cervaro dell' Sala is a white wine that is in no hurry to be drunk. Intense straw yellow with glints tending to gold, it has an intense and ample fragrance. In the mouth it is elegant and structured, but also fresh and savoury. It's hard to imagine a glass capable of giving more satisfaction.

The Antinori family has been dedicated to wine production for more than six hundred years. From when, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Florentine Guild of Vintners. Since then as many as 26 generations of the family have guided the destiny of the group, which today is one of the best known and best loved worldwide. The head of the company today is Marchese Piero Antinori, with the support of his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, all of whom are personally involved in the company's activities. The family's historic Tuscan and Umbrian estates have been joined over time by several others. Everywhere the aim of the Antinori family is to make the most of the local "terroir", seeking to produce fascinating and memorable wines. In this context, we cannot forget the great family Supertuscans, "Solaia" and "Tignanello", or the Chianti Classico wines that represent a quality reference point for all wine lovers.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeDry Still White Wine IGT
  • Location Umbria
  • Grapes Chardonnay, Grechetto
  • Sensations The 2017 vintage, characterized by a warm climate, still maintains an excellent freshness and the typical Mediterranean style of Cervaro dell' Sala. The nose is characterized by open notes of chamomile and flint. On the palate, it is savoury, with the characteristic delicate aromas of vanilla and butter which combine elegantly with hints of exotic fruit to compose a well-defined bouquet. "A wine that is still young and will evolve well in the years to come.
  • Vinification The winemaking cellar is built to take full advantage of the principle of gravity and allows the management of the grapes and their maceration without any mechanical intervention from pumping them. The harvesting of the grapes is carried out in the early hours of the morning so that the fruit reaches the cellar intact and not stressed by the high temperatures of the day. The must coming from pellicular maceration of the grapes at 10 ?C for about four hours, is transferred by gravity into decantation tanks where they clarify before being transferred into barriques. Here the alcoholic fermentation takes place, followed by malolactic fermentation. Usually after five months the Chardonnay is ready to be transferred again in steel to join the Grechetto, which instead is vinified separately and without wood. After bottling, the Cervaro dell' Sala refines in the bottle for a few months in the historic cellars of Castello dell' Sala.

    Thanks to the warm conditions of the vintage, Cervaro della Sala takes us back to a time when this wine was denser, more extracted and packed with glycerin-rich fruit flavors like apricot and peach. Of course, the Antinori family has since moved beyond that style, most notably by tweaking the oak regime used on this wine. But the thickness and richness of the fruit in this dry and hot vintage takes us back in time with a hint of sweet nostalgia. This wine is fresh and spicy with stone fruit, mature apricot, honey, saffron and toasted almond.

  • James Sucking 99

    This is big and powerful, without being ripe and heavy. So much apple, stone, and hints of toffee. Aromatic. Full-bodied, layered and framed with phenolic tension and a great finish. Muscular and agile at the same time. One of the best I have tasted. Drink or hold.

  • Wine Spectator 91

    Lavish hints of oak spice and lime blossom make an aromatic entry for this vibrant, medium- to full-bodied white, accenting the silky palate of nectarine, toast point and candied Meyer lemon zest flavors that linger on the finish. Chardonnay and Grechetto. Drink now through 2024.
