About Marchesi Antinori 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Conte Della Vipera, Castello della Sala, IGT Umbria

From Antinori's Umbria estate, this wine takes its name from first proprietors of the Castello della Sala, and the label shows the 13th century Saint John’s Chapel (the Cappella d San Giovanni) situated on the estate.

Grapes for this wine are a careful selection of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from vineyard at altitudes between 825 and 1050 feet above sea level on soils rich in marine fossils.

Grape clusters were hand harvested and immediately brought to the cellar where they were cooled down on a refrigerated conveyor system lowering the temperature of the berries before pressing therefore preserving characteristic varietal aromas. Each grape variety was fermented separately. After a gentle pressing, the must was kept at a controlled temperature for several hours to facilitate natural clarification, then transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature that did not exceed 61 °F. Once this phase was complete, the wine was kept at a controlled temperature to prevent malolactic fermentation and perfectly preserve organoleptic qualities.

James Suckling scored this 97 points saying “A full-bodied white with complex aromas of hawthorn, ripe peach, apricot, mango, lime, flint, toast and some smoke. Layered, concentrated and persistent with bright acidity and a firm, phenolic texture. Hint of vanilla. Very long and refined. Beautiful as always. Very approachable, but better from 2022.”
