Antinori Cevaro Della Sala

A 94 Point Italian Superstar
This has always been my favorite Italian White Wine, an amazing blend of Chardonnay and Grachetto.
2013 Antinori Cevaro Della Sala...$39.99
Next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $44.95I never get enough of this beautiful wine. The 2013 Cervaro della Sala is mostly Chardonnay (80%) blended with an Umbrian native grape, Grechetto. The results are glorious, and this vintage represents slight tweaks to the winemaking style in favor of more finesse and elegance. Back in 2009, Cervaro della Sala was executed in a heavier style. The aging potential of this celebrated white wine has been proven and demonstrated with tasting after tasting. This vintage is balanced and fresh with brimstone, stone fruit and creamy peach. With time, it will show more mineral nuances and additional aging sophistication.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate
