The wine, straw yellow in color with green highlights, expresses a full range of intense aromas which range from citrus fruit to pears and figs along with acacia flowers, which fuse with hints of vanilla to increase the overall complexity. Its flavors are ample and well structured, very mineral and with sweet notes of hazelnut butter, crispness and tonic vigor. It is destined to age and evolve very well indeed.
From Antinori's Castello della Sala estate, this landmark white helped to shine the spotlight on Umbria's untapped enological potential. A blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto, this is smooth, creamy, complex and long lasting. It offers a beautiful bouquet of vanilla, apricot, exotic fruit and honey, with a subtle touch of exotic spice. Cellar Selection.
The 2010 Cervaro della Sala (90% Chardonnay/10% Grechetto) is seriously beautiful in this vintage. A large-scaled, voluptuous wine, the 2010 emerges from the glass with an exotic mélange of honey, tropical fruit, butter, lemon and sweet spices. Underlying veins of minerality frame the striking, oily finish. Although the 2010 is pretty today, I will not be surprised if the 2010 improves with further time in bottle.
