Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Antinori's Umbrian beauty Castello della Sala Cervaro is not merely one of Italy's great white wines; it came about by accident. Piero Antinori wanted to create an Italian version of white Burgundy, but he and his team couldn't quite capture his vision. Ready to give up on the project, they shut the door to the cellar where the wine was fermenting, allowing the temperature to rise slightly, to induce malolactic fermentation, and to introduce this wine's creamy mouth-feel. Intended for aging--the estate has bottles dating to '85--Cevaro is a blend of mostly Chardonnay kissed with fifteen-percent Grechetto. Cool until summer, just wet enough, and 2009 was perfect for the creation of a wine with the optimal balance of juicy tropical fruits, piquant acidity, nice minerality and just the perfect touch of oak. This '09 is drinking to the end of the decade, likely longer.
