Vineyard: The vineyards cultivated for this wine has a particularly low yield per hectare. Vineyards at the Castello della Sala estate are situated at over 500 metres above sea level in the Umbrian Apennines, not far from the border with Tuscany. The soil is clay of sedimentary and volcanic origin.

Winery: Part of the juice was vinified using cryomaceration, where the must remained in contact with the skins for six hours at around 10°C. This must was then added to that obtained from direct pressing of the grapes, and moved to stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation took place at a low temperature. The wine stayed in these tanks until bottling.

Taste: Concentrated, rounded Orvieto from low-yielding vines on the Castello della Sala estate; ripe and floral with mineral notes and a long, rich finish.

Producer Information

Niccolo Antinori bought the 14th century Castello della Sala in 1940, to provide a source of white wines to match the excellence of his Tuscan reds. With the introduction of Cervaro della Sala in 1987, his dream was fully realised: this is one of Italy's defining whites, as influential and sought-after as Tignanello. Bram to del Cervo is effectively a mini-Cervaro, further proof of Umbria's affinity with Chardonnay; Conte della Vipera is a full, herbal Sauvignon, more Bordeaux in style than Loire. The inhabitants of the castle originally ruled over the whole province of Orvieto, so the range would not be complete without a flagship example of the DOC; the 'Superiore' designates much lower permitted yields, and hence considerable concentration.
