Castello della Sala is the Antinori family?s estate in Umbria. The 2008 Cervaro della Sala flows from the glass with delicate layers of mineral-infused yellow fruit, smoke and flowers. The 2008 is a somewhat lithe, linear Cervaro della Sala, that is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Cervaro della Sala is Chardonnay and Grechetto aged in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.

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.
