User Reviews for Castello Della Sala Conte Della Vipera Sauvignon

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. Intense citrus/herbal aromas evocative of ripe Sauvignon Blanc characterise this wine. It is given further spice and weight from barrel fermentation. Stylish, mineral and tangy with good structure.
