The name Marchesi Antinori Cervaro Della Sala White 2017 pays homage to a noble family that was the owner of the imposing Castello della Sala, a building which was constructed in the 14th century between Umbria and Tuscany and which tells the story of the region at the time.

Marchesi Antinori Cervaro Della Sala White 2017 is a mixture of Chardonnay grapes and a small amount of Grechetto. This combination, created at the Antinori Wineries, is a demonstration of the evolution of the wine tradition and the elegance of the best Italian wines.

The first vintage of the Cervaro was produced in 1985, and since then it has received outstanding ratings in publications, including high scores from James Sucking (97 points) and Wine Advocate (95 points).
