Castello della Sala

Castello della Sala is located in the region of Umbria, not far from the Tuscan border and around 20 kilometres from the historic town of Orvieto.

A medieval castle towers over the vineyard, which occupies the gently rolling hillside between 220 and 470 metres above sea level. The relative high altitude nature of these vines ensures they provide the perfect fruit for the production of fresh, zesty whites. The vines grow in clay and calcareous based soils, rich in fossil shells, and they are well exposed to the rising of the sun with an excellent difference of temperature between day and night. The resulting wines are complex, elegant and fresh, underpinned by wonderful mineral acidity.

San Giovanni Orvieto Classico Superiore 2018

Concentrated, rounded Orvieto from low-yielding vines on the Castello della Sala estate; ripe and floral with mineral notes and a long, rich finish.

Surprisingly mellow with subtle stone fruit tones but still retaining its freshness. Delicious with fish or chicken in a creamy or buttery sauce. Wish you had more of it!!
