Cervaro della Sala, Umbria 2011




Cervaro della Sala, Umbria

Intense, complex aroma with notes of white flowers and flint balanced by a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied and well-structured palate with notes of toast, citrus and mineral. Elegant and persistent in the mouth, this is a wine with a long life ahead of it.

Castello della Sala, Umbria

Niccolò Antinori bought the fourteenth-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 realized: this is one of Italy’s defining whites, as influential and sought-after as Tignanello. Bramito del Cervo is effectively a mini-Cervaro, further proof of umbria’s affinity with Chardonnay; Conte della Vipera is full, herbal bordeaux-inspired blend of Sauvignon and Semillon. 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 that DOC; the ‘Superiore’ designates much lower permitted yields, and hence considerable concentration.
