It's about as classic as I have ever tasted this landmark white from Umbria to be.

The name Cervaro comes from the noble familythat owned Castello della Sala during the 14th century, Monaldeschi della Cervara. A blend of Chardonnay grapesand asmall quantity of Grechetto make a wine that can age over time and represent the elegance and complexity of this unique estate. Cervaro della Salais one of the first Italian wines to have malolactic fermentation and aging take place in barriques. The firstvintage of Cervaro to be produced was the 1985 vintage.

"The 2018 Cervaro della Salaisaluminous straw yellow in color streaked with occasional greenish highlights. The nose shows light toasted notesaccompanied byaromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit,and hints of butter. The palate is notablysavoryand fresh, con characteristics of chamomile, white fruit,and flintalong with a pleasurable persistence and tasting depth. Itsyouth,although alreadyinviting and enjoyable,announces much capacityforaging. The wine, still quite young, will evolve in an optimal fashion in the years to come." Antinori 

"Compared to the 2017 vintage that shows a more accessible and full-bodied style, the 2018 Cervaro della Sala is a classic edition—it's about as classic as I have ever tasted this landmark white from Umbria to be. This cooler vintage prizes finesse and elegance, and those traits are matched by efforts in the winery to accomplish that same goal. On many levels, the 2018 vintage opens a new chapter for Cervaro della Sala, with a stronger emphasis on preserved lemon, crisp pear and crushed mineral. The wine offers beautiful freshness and linearity. I must also mention that this vintage is released while the fruit is still a bit closed or shy. That slightly reductive approach bodes very well for the wine's future evolution." 96/100, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
