Winery: Muffato della Sala 2016 is an intense, bright golden yellow color. Its nose has depth and complexity with striking citrus aromas that merge with delicate notes of peaches, dried apricots and saffron. The palate is mouth filling, sweet but not too sweet, with light savory sensations and a lengthy finish. Its well-balanced character can be savored immediately, or it can be left to age over time improving its aromatic complexity.
Muffato della Sala is produced with grapes with “noble rot”, harvested in late October and early November to allow the morning mists to develop of Botrytis Cinerea, or noble rot on the grape berries. This type of mould concentrates the water of the crop, its sugars, and its aromas, endowing the Muffato della Sala with a harmonious and unmistakable fragrance. The first year to be produced was the 1987 and consisted of the blend of varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc (50%); Grechetto (30%) and Drupeggio (20%). The composition of the blend has varied over the years and now has attained its definitive results.
