2012 Cervaro, Castello Della Sala, Antinori, IGT Umbria

Whilst professional reviews of this wines have yet to be released, Antinori notes that the Cervaro is “A luminous yellow in colour with greenish highlights, the wine, despite a hot vintage, maintains the savoury freshness of the Mediterranean style thanks to a slightly early harvest of the grapes. The nose shows notes of chamomile, flint and tropical fruit. The palate is mineral and the vibrant flavours fuse, with a perfect elegance, with the buttery notes and the light touches of vanilla.”

Antinori

The Antinori have been involved in the Tuscan wine trade for an impressive 26 generations. In 1970, scion Piero first made a wine that was ineligible for the official Chianti classification from the single vineyard, Tignanello. While it was not the first Super Tuscan, Tignanello played a huge role in shaking up the Italian wine scene. Its success was quickly followed by the creation of Solaia, which has quickly become one of Italy’s most sought-after wines.
