Description
This winery's name honours the Monaldeschi della Cervara family, who was the historical owner of Castello della Sala in the 16th century. The wine itself, made by the iconic Marchesi Antinori and first produced in 1985, blends Chardonnay with the indigenous Grechetto grape and is one of the first Italian white wines to have malolactic fermentation and maturation take place in oak barriques. Look for an elegantly robust wine showing crunchy orchard fruit.
Tasting Notes
Compared to the 2017 vintage that shows a more accessible and full-bodied style, the 2018 Cervaro della Sala is a classic edition - it's about as classic as I have ever tasted this landmark white from Umbria to be. This cooler vintage prizes finesse and elegance, and those traits are matched by efforts in the winery to accomplish that same goal. On many levels, the 2018 vintage opens a new chapter for Cervaro della Sala, with a stronger emphasis on preserved lemon, crisp pear and crushed mineral. The wine offers beautiful freshness and linearity. I must also mention that this vintage is released while the fruit is still a bit closed or shy. That slightly reductive approach bodes very well for the wine's future evolution. Drink date: 2020-2035. Score - 96. (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Oct. 17, 2019)
