San Giovanni Della Sala 2014 Orvieto Classico Superiore, Antinori
Antinori’s Castello della Sala castle is located approximately ten miles from the city of Orvieto and is a fine example of medieval military architecture. The estate enjoys an ideal micro-climate for the production of wines which require cooler than average temperatures, in particular white wines. The first vintage of the Castello della Sala Orvieto Classico was 1990. In 1997 the wine became an Orvieto DOC Classico Superiore, a new appellation category established in that year. The “Superiore” category specifies that yields per acre in the vineyard must be lower than those of a normal Orvieto Classico, that the grapes can only be picked when in an advanced state of ripeness. A blend of 50% Grechetto, 25% Procanico and 25% Pinot Blanc and Viognier, all fermented separately. After the first rackings, the wines remained on fine lees for several months to increase structure, elegance, and mineral character and was then blended and bottled. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 91 points saying “Heady aromas of citrus blossom, tropical fruit and yellow stone fruit lead the way. The fresh, enjoyable palate doles out apricot, pineapple, nectarine and a hint of chopped herb alongside lively acidity.”
