About Antinori, Cervaro Della Sala 2019 Chardonnay, IGT Umbria
Antinori's Cervaro 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 8% Grechetto grapes, fermented and aged for five months in French oak barriques. It then matures in the bottle for about 10 months in the Medieval cellars of the Castle.
Cervaro della Sala 2019 is pale yellow in color with greenish highlights. Its complex nose shows notes of citrus fruit and pineapple that blend harmoniously with hints of vanilla. The palate is refined and structured. 2019 is among Cervaro della Sala’s greatest vintages, with remarkable aging potential for years to come.
