Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Antinori Castello della Sala Cervaro Chardonnay 2021

*** DAMAGED LABEL ***

The 2021 Cervaro della Sala is pale yellow in color with notable greenish highlights. Its intense, complex nose shows notes of citrus fruit, pineapples and acacia blossoms that blend harmoniously with hints of vanilla and flint. On the palate, it’s generous, refined and well structured; pleasantly savory notes are well-balanced by typical sweet sensations of hazelnut butter.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 97:
This is very aromatic and lifted with mineral, nougat, floral, and lightly cooked apples. Some flint and matchstick. Medium- to full-bodied with a fine phenolic and acid backbone that energizes the wine. Complex aftertaste with subtle fruit and pastry at the end. This will age beautifully but hard not to drink now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Rated 96:
This wine is mostly Chardonnay with about 7% Grechetto. The presence of the Grechetto has declined quite a bit over the past couple of vintages. Given these tweaks to the winemaking formula, the 2021 Cervaro della Sala promises an exceptionally crisp and linear presentation with salty mineral tones, lots of stone fruit and tart apple. No malolactic fermentation or oak is used on the Umbrian grape that always adds a hint of rusticity and Umbrian authenticity. However, the Chardonnay is fermented in oak and aged in both new and used barrel.
