The Castello Della Sala Antinori Cervaro Della Sala Umbria Blanc 2011 comes from a very atypical vintage. A sunny July with cool nights was followed by a sticky and hot August with constant day and night temperatures. So the vintners of Castello Della Sala were asked to handle quickly and wisely. The 2011 vintage delivered very aromatic grapes resulting in elegant wines of good structure, acidity and alcoholic degree with a nice aging potential. The name of the Castello Della Sala Antinori Cervaro Della Sala Umbria Blanc 2011 refers to the noble family, the Monaldeschi Della Cervara, who owned the Castello Della Sala in the 14th century. But in 1940, the Antinori family purchased this winery to produce the brand's first edition of the award-winning and renowned Cervaro Della Sala in 1985.

Vi njöt det med ett härligt ris. Jag drack det med en klient.
Jag tyckte att Antinori Umbria Cervaro Della Sala hade en mycket klar färg. Jag märkte inget annat i näsan än lukten av päron och banan. Det hade en karaktäristisk sötma på gommen.

Jeg besøkte produsenten og kjøpte et par flasker der.
Jeg la merke til en matt farge. Honningaktig duft. Det er spennende med en litt bitter ettersmak som i denne hvitvin.
