A rich golden hue in the glass, the '13 Muffato Della Sala reflects its cool, classic growing year in its vivid acidity, precision, and breathtaking balance. Layers and layers of zesty citrus, luscious tropical, and crisp orchard fruits mingle with notes of honey, white wildflowers, and kisses of toasted nuts, pressed herbs, and saline minerals in this creamy wine's dreamy, complex palate. Fresh and exciting, this Muffato Della Sala vintage feels clean and silky, unspooling across the palate with elegant minerality and kinetic energy as it builds to a succulent, sweet-tart finish. Derived primarily from grapes that have realized a considerable degree of concentration and been affected by noble rot, Muffato della Sala is mostly Sauvignon Blanc blended with Grechetto, Gewurztraminer, and Semillon. Grapes ferment for 18 days in temperature-controlled steel, and the wine ages for six months in oak before blending and bottling. Enjoyable now, the '13 Muffato della Sala has considerable agin

Antinori : Sala (Castello) Description

While deeply ensconced in the rebellious tradition of Super-Tuscan wines, Piero Antinori stands in opposition to most Super-Tuscan winemakers. In contradiction to those producers who looked to French techniques, Antinori believes imitating a Bordeaux wine is wrong; rather, he wants to make great wines by using Italian tradition to shape both indigenous and international varietals. With the guidance of legendary enologist Giacomo Tachis, Antinori introduced Tignanello in 1971, Solaia in 1978, and Guado al Tasso in 1990. Headquartered in the heart of Chianti Classico, this winemaking dynasty dates to 1385 when Antinori's ancestors joined the Florentine Guild of Vintners. Twenty-six generations later, Antinori has developed estates in Toscana's finest and most progressive viticultural areas of Montalcino, Chianti Classico, and Montepulciano, and beyond, all of which work in concert to produce some of the best-loved Italian wines.
