Description:
Vineyard: There are forty hectares of Chardonnay planted at Castello della Sala, with a mixture of several clones. The vineyards are situated between 200 and 400 metres above sea level, on soil rich in marine fossils with some clay.

Winery: The grapes were first placed in vats and held at 10°C for a few hours' cold maceration, then the free-run juice racked to French oak barrels (Alliers and Troncais) where alcoholic and partial malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was aged in wood for five months before blending and bottling.

Taste: The baby brother of the iconic Cervaro della Sala is an exceptional wine in its own right, with a richly structured palate and aromas of apples, vanilla and toast.

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.
