Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
A mineral-laden, terroir-driven wine that captures the sultriness of the vintage, this ’11 Cervaro della Sala offers its juicy orchard fruits, spice, citrus and almond notes, yet while it’s opulent and rich, this Chardonnay nonetheless shows the hand of its makers in its fine structure, elegance and mouth-feel. While the 2011 growing season was challenging to some, Antinori and Renzo Cotarella's team timed the harvest impeccably to capture the berries at their ripest and most intense--yet still nicely acidic for balance. The result is a wine that's layered and sumptuous, but still structured and long aging; it's a luminous vintage that will shine its light for decades, while still offering relatively early drinking. Intended for aging--the estate has bottles dating to '85, about the same time that Angelo Gaja was perfecting his Chardonnay-based Gaia & Rey--Cevaro is a blend of mostly Chardonnay kissed with ten percent Grechetto.
