About Antinori, Cervaro Della Sala 2017 Chardonnay, IGT Umbria

Antinori's Castello della Sala estate in Umbria boasts high altitude vineyards between 660-1325 feet above sea level on soils derived from sedimentary marine fossils mingled with clay stratas. Cervaro della Sala, the "flagship" wine of the estate, has earned important recognition and countless admirers. It is the only Italian wine to receive Gambero Rosso's Tre Bicchieri Award every vintage it's been produced! It is a blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto grapes, fermented and aged for five months in French oak barriques. It then matures in the bottles for about 10 months in the Medieval cellars of the Castle. 


James Suckling scored this 99 points saying "This is big and powerful, without being ripe and heavy. So much apple, stone, and hints of toffee. Aromatic. Full-bodied, layered and framed with phenolic tension and a great finish. Muscular and agile at the same time. One of the best I have tasted."
