Castello Della Sala Bramito del Cervo 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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. The grapes originate from fifteen to twenty-year-old vineyards surrounding Castello della Sala, at altitudes between 200 and 400 metres above sea level. The soil is rich in marine fossils with some clay. This baby brother of the iconic Cervaro della Sala is an exceptional wine in its own right, with a richly structured palate and aromas of apples and toast. This particular vintage shares the delightful plump texture of so many Italian whites in 2008. 91 points Robert Parker.
