Producer

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 Italys 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.


Vineyard

The vineyards used for the Conte della Vipera lie at altitudes of 250-350 metres above sea level. The soils are rich in marine fossils and layered with clay, increasing the minerality in the grapes.


Winery

Following gentle pressing, the must was kept at a temperature of 10°C for several hours for natural clarification before fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 16ºC. No malolactic fermentation took place.


Taste

Antinoris take on the classic white bordeaux blend, showing expressive Sauvignon aromas of peach, herbs and melon, backed up by citrusy Semillon. Dry and zesty yet with ample weight and richnes in the mouth.

A light yellow in colour with greenish highlights, the wines shows fruity and varietal aromas with pleasurable notes of citrus fruit along with white peaches and lichees. The palate is characterful and structured with a vibrant vein of acidity which adds freshness to the flavours. The finish and aftertaste are long and balanced.
