The 2011 Cervaro della Sala is an outstanding expression that will benefit from many more years of careful aging. The blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto opens to golden rays of luminous brilliance that glimmer through the glass. The bouquet is beautifully shaped by toasted almond, vanilla, clove, orange zest, stone fruit and honey. Mineral notes add dimension to what is otherwise a super-rich and balanced mouthfeel. The 2011 vintage shows unique energy and intensity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.”,,,

Other text
Castello della Sala Chardonnay was first produced with the 1994 vintage. It is Marchesi Antinori's second Chardonnay, and, like its more important sibling, Cervaro, is produced at Castello della Sala, an 14th century Castle, located 11 miles from the town of Orvieto, which was purchased by Marchesi Antinori in 1940. The castle is an outstanding example of medieval military architecture, and its micro-climate makes it ideal for the production of cooler-weather wines such as whites or Pinot Noir.
