Count of the Viper, spririt of warrior and a bewitching heart

It was 1350 when Angelo Monaldeschi della Vipera, after years of fratricidal fights for the dominion over Orvieto, had the castle erected which today is the heart of the Umbrian estate of the Antinori. His nephew Gentile Monaldeschi della Vipera was the first of the lineage to be called "della Sala" from which the castle inherited the name. Since 1940 the estate belongs to the Antinori family and this wine is dedicated to the founder of the castle. It is a Sauvignon with a contribution of 20% of Semillon which gives it minerality and flavour. The grapes are hand-picked and chilled before being subjected to soft pressing. After the alcoholic fermentation the assemblage with the Semillon takes place and the refinement in steel to preserve the varietal characteristics of the Sauvignon.

At the sight it shows a bright straw yellow with pleasant greenish reflections. On the nose there is a large quantity of aromas reminiscent of the passion fruit, lemon zest and kiwi arranged on an eye-catching floral register based on hawthorn.

The taste is soft, savoury and sapid with hints of herbs in closing. Ideal with shellfish skewers, also excellent with a mad water bass.
