San Giovanni della Sala Orvieto 2018 75cl 12.5% ABV
San Giovanni Della Sala Orvieto 2018
This White Wine is a concentrated, rounded Orvieto from low-yielding vines on the Castello della Sala estate; ripe and floral with mineral notes and a long, rich finish.
Niccolo 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 Wine from the traditional Orvieto to the mould-breaking IGTs.
