Vineyard: The vineyards are situated between 200 and 400 metres above sea level, on soil rich in marine fossils with some clay. The grapes were hand picked in several phases, depending on the progress of the Botrytis cinerea.

Winery: Light whole-bunch pressing of the grapes were followed by fermentation for eighteen days at 17 degrees centigrade. The wine was transferred to French oak barrels (Alliers and Troncais) where it was aged for six months before blending and bottling.

Taste: Rich and complex aromas are followed on the palate by ripe citrus fruits with hints of honeysuckle and spice.

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.
