The renowned Antinori family can trace its wine-making roots back to 1385. They have been one of the most innovative wine makers of the twentieth century, combining Italian with classic French varietals, to make wines such as the groundbreaking and iconic Tignanello. Cervaro della Sala is the Meursault of Umbria. 2014 was the ideal year for whites in Italy and this wine shows intense aromas of citrus fruit, pear and acacia flowers, with a hint of vanilla. It is full-bodied in the mouth and well structured with buttery and hazelnut notes but with pleasing minerality on the finish. Made with 90% Chardonnay, the 10% Grechetto adds freshness. Ideal with chicken and fish with a sauce, shellfish, goat’s cheese or simply as an aperitif.

More Information

Niccolò Antinori bought the fourteenth-century Castello della Sala in 1940, to provide a source of white wines to match the excellence of his Tuscan reds. With the introduction of Cervaro della Sala in 1987, his dream was fully realised: this is one of Italy’s defining whites, as influential and sought after as Tignanello. The vineyards are planted with a mixture of traditional Italian and international varieties, offering a range of wines from the traditional Orvieto to the mould-breaking IGTs.
