Description

History

The Antinori family has been producing wine for more than 25 generations, exactly since 1385, and today owns many estates scattered throughout the region, Italy and the world. In particular, the Castello della Sala is located in Umbria, not far from Tuscany in the area of the municipality of Orvieto. It was built in 1350 for Angelo Monaldeschi della Vipera and belonged to the family for about 2 centuries, until Giovanna Monaldeschi della Cervara donated the Castle to the Cathedral of Orvieto. It will remain public property until 1860 when the nascent Italian state will alienate the structure to private individuals. In 1940 Piero Antinori’s father, the Marquis Niccolò Antinori, acquired the structure with the awareness that it could have a very high potential for the production of quality wine. In fact, the lands of the Castle extend for about 500 hectares of which 170 are planted with vines, and are located at an altitude ranging between 220 and 470 m a.s.l., an element that allows the company to cultivate many varieties with very aromatic results. different. The soil is mainly clayey, with the presence of many ancient fossils, another element that gives richness and minerality to the wines produced. All these aspects mean that the lands of Castello della Sala are particularly suitable for the production of white wines with one exception: that of Pinot Noir, an international vine that gives its best in areas with strong temperature variations between day and night.

Grapes used

Sauvignon Blanc 60%

Grechetto, Gewürztraminer and Riesling 40%

Production method

The grapes used to produce this wine are attacked by botrytis cinerea mould, which dehydrates the berries by raising the sugar content of the grapes, effectively overripe and giving specific aromas to the grapes and then to the wine. The harvest is manual and we also return to the same part of the vineyard depending on the achievement of the desired maturation. After harvesting, the grapes are further selected on a sorting belt, and are then softly pressed. The must obtained then ferments for about 18 days at a temperature of 17°C and is then transferred to Allier & Troncais oak barrels where it matures for 6 months before continuing the refinement in steel for about 2 years.

Tasting notes

Bright and intense golden yellow colour. On the nose the aromas are fine, elegant and delicate: apricot jam, ripe peach, dried yellow flowers, orange peel and candied fruit, balsamic sensations, notes of iodized sapidity and notes of white spice such as white pepper, vanilla and toasted peanuts. Slightly viscous in the mouth, balanced between sweet and hard components of the wine, long and fresh finish, well balanced with the spicier notes.

Excellent as a meditation wine or after a meal.
