Dear Wine Lover,
We just received in our cellar our personal favourite white wine from Italy, Antinoris Cervaro della Sala 2016, which is now ready to be shipped. This is not only our personal favourite but also our mostly sold Italian white wine in general. The new excellent vintage 2016 is highest rated ever with 97 points by James Suckling who describes it as the Batard Montrachet of Italy! Would like to give it a try as it is the best vintage ever produced for this great white wine?
Home to one of the most celebrated Chardonnay-based wines in Italy, Castello della Sala was named after the noble family, who owned the Castello during the 14th century and was purchased by the Antinoris in 1940. Since 1985, its first vintage, it has won numerous awards and has been recognized for its notable quality.
Cervaro is mainly Chardonnay blended with an Umbrian native grape, Grechetto. The results are glorious, this vintage is balanced and fresh with Dried mango and green papaya. With time, it will show more mineral nuances and additional aging sophistication. The aging potential of this celebrated white wine has been proven and demonstrated with tasting after tasting of older back-vintages. Its lovely to be tasted now during this incoming summer or you can put it away for up to 10 years and enjoy it at a later stage.
Let us know soonest in case of interest as, like always, the quantities are pretty limited and as this is usually sold out very quickly, especially if quality is on its highest level ever, as this year. As James Suckling says, Don't miss this one!

James Suckling 97 points: This is the Batard Montrachet of Italy with such and amazing depth and compression of beautiful fruit and chalk. Dried mango and dried green papaya. Full body, yet tight and focused. Energized acidity. Vibrance. Don't miss this one. A wine for now or in the future.
