Castello della Sala Muffato della Sala 2019
Antinori's Muffato della Sala is a fascinating dessert style wine made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Grechetto, Traminer, Sémillon and Riesling all affected by Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot). The morning mists and local microclimate favour the development of this rot which reduces the water content of the grapes. The resulting concentration of sugars and aromas give the Muffato its special and unmistakeable flavour. A wonderful golden yellow in colour, the wine shows an important aromatic and flavour complexity characterised first by floral and honeyed aromas and then fresher notes, citric and mineral in the bracing savour they bring to the wine. Though still young, the wine is already balanced but is destined to evolve over time and greatly increase in complexity.
