Tasting notes: a light garnet red in color, the nose recalls delicate aromas which range from spices to floral notes of violets and roses along with red berry fruit. The palate is supple and tasty with elegant tannins, silky and polished in texture, the finish long and balanced, the wine is already drinking well but is also endowed with a very important aging potential.
Vinification: the grapes were harvested in vineyards at over 1320 feet (400 meters) above sea level at the Castello della Sala estate near Orvieto in Umbria. After destemming and a partial pressing, the must went into small, conical, stainless steel fermenting tanks where it fermented on its skins for approximately one week. The must fermented at a temperature of 79° Fahrenheit (26° centigrade) and finished its fermentation in small French oak barrels, where it subsequently went through a complete malolactic fermentation. The aging in oak barrels continued for ten months, and the wine, at the end of this period of oak aging, was then bottled. An additional eight month period of bottle aging in the historic Castello della Sala cellars preceded commercial release.
