Marchesi L. & P. Antinori Cervaro Della Sala Umbria 6 2006

Member Review by marmite:

This is superb. I know very little about Italian wine, but being a big fan of white Burgundy asked the advice of the sommelier at http://www.locandalocatelli.com/ for something that would be along the same lines and compliment our meal. Cervaro was recommended and it went particularly well with the sweetbreads and kidneys that we had for main course.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

Got this on a "discount rack" at a local liquor store for $8. I was afraid that it may be corked but was relieved to find out that wasn't the case. There's a muskmelon/honeydew element on the nose as well as a distinct floral note. Good acidity on the midpalate and finish. Not a fruit bomb by any means but this is a nice crisp wine. Personally, I'm not a huge chardonnay fan so for me to give this the rating I have says quite a bit. I like it enough that if I found another for the same price I'd probably buy again, although wine-searcher.com had this listed for $45 a bottle.....which I would most likely not buy. Chardonnay fans out there might appreciate this one more than I do.
